Greenville native, Lauren Campbell is Restore One’s newest intern. In elementary school, Campbell went to the Dominica Republic with Covenant Church, which sparked a desire to stand up for children’s and youth’s rights, one she feels is her kingdom-calling.
“This mission trip positively impacted my life and opened my eyes to the numerous issues faced by millions such as extreme poverty and hunger,” Campbell said.
Now a senior at East Carolina University’s School of Social Work, her major called for an internship to graduate and Campbell felt Restore One was the place to be. As a Christian, an agency that would offer faith-based recovery and healing to domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) survivors, was a great motivator in applying.
“I feel called by God to make a difference in this world where children’s and youths’ rights are taken away prematurely,” Campbell said.
As part of the internship, Campbell will assist with Restore One’s trafficking prevention program, Project So Loved, the Art Expo Fundraiser, Change Purse, and advocacy.
Fun facts: When Campbell has free time she enjoys taking walks on the Greenway with her husband James. She also enjoys cooking and baking, traveling, and experiencing different cultures.
