Member Spotlight: Glee’s Lauren Potter

May 2, 2011

Name: Lauren Potter

Age: 21

From: Riverside, California

Occupation: Actor, currently appearing on the Fox TV show  Glee

Why did you join TEAM MARIA?

To help raise money for the Best Buddies program and have fun with the new friends I have met! I am excited to be a member of  Team Maria even though Anthony tried to get me to join Team Anthony instead! He did tell me that he was just kidding though!

Why is the Best Buddies program, and its mission, so important?

I had a Best Buddy where I live, and it gave me a chance to hang out with people my own age. I think it is an important program because sometimes kids and people with disabilities feel left out when the friends they went to school with start driving and hanging out with other friends and then go off the college. It can get pretty lonely.

What motivates you to participate in the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hearst Castle?

I want people to realize how important Best Buddies is, and to help raise money so that more kids and young adults can feel included! I hope that people who watch me on Glee will want to join me too!
