Laura continued to be featured in “Rated G” until the summer before college, in addition to gaining experience writing for the high school paper. Two and a half years later, she started writing a book.

*This article referred to Sick as best-selling but Laura can’t qualify it as that. Also, her age in Sep. 2014 was 25, not 23. The bottom states she is a certified personal trainer; she was at the time of Sick’s publication.
