My name is Lauren Hogan and I am a current undergraduate student at California Baptist University receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a concentration in Life Span Development and a minor in Global Studies. I was raised in the outskirts of San Francisco with a deep love for traveling, skiing, and learning to love the world & people that the Lord has made.
During my time living in Mammoth Lakes as a summer intern I have been blessed with the opportunity to both teach and learn. Mammoth is an undeniably beautiful place in which every evening is a reminder of such through the elaborate painting like sunsets across the skyline. The unique beauty of nature in Mammoth is overwhelming, the community is welcoming, and the desire to seek wisdom and experience is contagious. Proverbs 1 asks the question, “How long will you who are simple love your simple ways”? Both Rachel and Pete Bowman, the founders of The Station, as well as the rest of the staff without a doubt seek to grow, daily, and encourage others to take part in doing so.
What can you expect while living in Mammoth as a Station intern? Everything. Every day is different however; the foundation to learning more upon learning the authenticity of love alike the one in which the Lord has shown toward us is constant. Therefore, my advise to those whether you may consider taking part in this wonderful opportunity or have already committed to doing so would include the following: be willing to be teachable, humble, patient, display honor, seek wisdom, enjoy the beauty of the people and life in Mammoth, and most of all love both zealously and unconditionally. I hope to see you soon up on the mountain!
