Laura Lyons

Youth Leadership Coordinator

I am part of WorldOregon because people matter; it is person-to-person interaction that will eventually lead us to a more peaceful world.
I love my work when I can make connections that inspire relationships or the exchange of ideas.
Hidden superpower is that I can do most crossword puzzles in under 10 minutes. Almost undefeated in Scrabble. Challenges gladly accepted!
I also speak Pulaar, Wollof, and Mandinka (from my time in the Peace Corps in The Gambia), Spanish, a little French, and even less Mandarin and Arabic…so far.
Favorite place to be is lost in a forest, anywhere in the world.
