KNOW YOUR LSPIRG STAFF: LAKYN BARTON

This is the third instalment of the "know your LSPIRG staff series." This post will hopefully provide an introduction to Lakyn Barton, newly hired Communications and Community Director. Unlike past instalments, Lakyn has not been interviewed by another staff member. But instead, filled out one of those early-Facebook/MySpace quizzes (did we just seriously date ourselves?).

Name: Lakyn Barton

Any nicknames? Nope. They really don't stick with me for some reason.

Harry Potter House: Slytherin (it's not a bad house!). To paraphrase Pottermore, Slytherins are about community and making sure everyone succeeds.

Websites you check in the morning: CBC, Tumblr, Facebook, and TVLine.

Something people wouldn't guess about you: I loved the CTS channel as a child - and watched Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond on repeat. 

Any pets? Sadly none right now. Hopefully I will be able to adopt animals in the future. I love pugs, pitbulls, and bulldogs and any type of judgement-filled cat.

Embarrassing Story: I once fell asleep front row at a comedy show due to taking nighttime cold medication. I woke up at intermission and the people next to me had moved... I wish I could apologize to those people.
