Lauren Scruggs

In December 2011, Lauren (“LoLo”) Scruggs, a 23-year-old fashion journalist, suffered a sudden injury that made headlines around the world. She had been on a short flight to look at Christmas lights and, upon exiting the small plane, was hit by the still-moving propeller blade. A frantic 911 call, several major surgeries, and thousands of prayers later: Lauren lived. But she lost her left hand and left eye. And she had to face some incredibly difficult questions: What kind of future will I have? Where is God in all this pain? Will anyone ever be able to love me now? In her first book, Still Lolo, Lauren reveals what life is like today, what got her and her family through their journey toward healing, and how they conquered all odds to persevere.

Today, Lauren is the Founder and Editor of LOLO Magazine, a full online lifestyle hub that unites all things fashion, beauty and health. Together with Bethany Hamilton, she also started a yearly retreat for girls that have lost a limb to create a community and encourage one another on their journey.
