Meet Laura.

I was born in Manhattan, New York on August 3rd, 1991 at Lenox Hill Hospital and raised in the Gravesend area of Brooklyn, New York. I grew up in a middle class Italian Catholic household. I attended public school and dancing school as well as competed in various dance competitions all throughout my early years and into high school. My ambitious and diligent work ethic developed throughout the course of my academic studies and blossomed into something greater simultaneously while holding admirable positions during my mid-late adolescent years that ranged from marketing director, event coordinator and sales manager for a fashion and lifestyle magazine that positively influenced my creative, entrepreneurial spirit. In the field I became well rounded through the cultures of others and supported myself while maintaining a level of survival that ultimately led me to earn my real estate license in 2012.

Soon thereafter in 2014 I attended the vibrant and creative Fashion institute of Technology in the Chelsea area of Manhattan, New York majoring in Advertising and Marketing Communications. During my first semester I had earned straight A’s totaling a GPA of 3.7 and was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa honor Society. Subsequently I switched majors to Fashion Business Management and obtained my Associate’s degree in Fashion Business Management. In 2015 while working in real estate renting apartments at Douglas Elliman real estate in Manhattan and Brooklyn, although I had my car I was commuting via the subway and working with relocation clients from other countries and would run around the city for hours on end daily showing five to ten apartments a day in all different parts dependent on the client’s needs and specifications so much so that one day after showing ten apartments in Bushwick and Park Slope my feet were black and blue under my ballet flats. I’ve always advocated for my clients and covered all bases to ensure that they would find the right place to call home.

Instantaneously after following the completion of my Associate’s degree I had enrolled in the Bachelor’s degree program for International Trade and Marketing double minoring in Economics and English. I had chosen these minors in particular as Economics was apparently a strong suit and interest to me as well as English writing. I’ve always had an innate talent and love for writing as that was always a liberating way for me to express myself or tell a story within my descriptive, fluid, and authentic writing style. During my education numerous professors would commend my writing assignments and urge me to pursue writing as a livelihood. Many professors at FIT left an indelible positive impact and provided an interactive environment to foster learning while encouraging students to grow into professionals. I graduated on May 25th, 2022 with Dean’s List acknowledgement as a result of straight A’s and as a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.

Aside from my accolades during my college years I was faced with a series of countless health challenges such as celiac disease, Lyme disease etc. due to years spent in a poignantly toxic relationship in a quest to help someone who was intrinsically and deliberately abusive to say the least. It was the darkest time of my life and simultaneously my close friend had passed away suddenly. I had enlisted the help of a life coach that had vanished and left me without support when I needed it most. I started thinking that I wished there was an app where I could go to talk to someone and gain support.

In September of 2022, I managed to gather the courage and muster the strength through my faith in God, hope, and perseverance to end the engagement and begin healing. I began writing my first original and unique screenplay in October of 2022 and completed it within a short time by mid-November of 2022. It’s based on an entertaining and noteworthy premise that will inevitably provide a beacon of hope for others.

Shortly thereafter I began studying for my real estate Florida Broker License and passed the state licensing exam on April 8th 2023. The culmination of events inspired me to start working on my app The Hive over the last few months that launched on May 22nd 2023. I know how it feels to be ignored, neglected, abandoned, excluded and alone. My soul’s mission is to empower others to break free from whomever or whatever is shrinking and/or diluting them and inspire change and growth for the better, and most importantly to help one another. I believe this app carries the ability to offer constant and reliable support and can truly save lives, and if this purpose can be achieved for others, then my mission is complete.
