Lara Aguirre Medina

Lara Aguirre Medina (she/her) comes to Lookout as a Community and Commerce intern, focusing on outreach and building partnerships for our student engagement program.

Originally from Los Angeles, she plans to graduate from UC Santa Cruz in the summer of 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts in both Business Management Economics and Film/Digital Media.

In her spare time, Lara enjoys going on walks and riding her bike as a way to get to know the ins and outs of her new town.

As a Peer Adviser for Oakes College, she’s been able to work closely with fellow Banana Slugs, leading them toward student success as they plan their academic careers. Lara’s experience and passion for student engagement directly applies to her work at Lookout, helping students get involved and engaged in local news and more connected to the larger Santa Cruz community.
