Lauren’s hobbies

Hey everyone,
Personally, 2 hobbies I have pursued and continue to enjoy throughout my life are golf and watercolour painting. Golf is a sport where the goal is to strike a small ball from a location into a hole within the lowest amount of strokes whereas watercolour painting is a form of art using water-based paints that provide a specific transparent look.

Since the age of 7, I have attended a Chinese Watercolour painting class every Sunday where my creativity mindset continues to expand from learning basic brushstrokes to creating compositions. I find the class very relaxing and provides a form of calming therapy for my busy hectic schedule. Although it is only an hour and a half, as a group we have grown up together and essentially built a small community. Sadly, I don’t have a picture of one of my paintings but here is a similar style I found on the internet.

On the other hand, golf has also had a major impact on my life by providing myself a sport to invest in when figure skating was no longer an option due to multiple concussions. My coach and fellow competotors that I train with work together to achieve a common goal of being our personal best. Simular to painting, golf has our own family where everyone is very supportive of each other especially during spring and summer when it’s tournament season.
