Laurène Southe

Laurène is a creative writer and freelance photographer based in Vienna, Austria of Congolese descent. As early as the age of three, she moved back and forth to her neighbouring country of Switzerland, attending several prestigious boarding schools on the borders of France for almost a decade. During her residence, she would mainly be taught in French, English and German. In 2011, Laurène relocated to South East London where she received most of her secondary education. Whilst at middle school, she also attended the Anna Fiorentini Theatre and Film School, building there a strong passion for creative writing. In her free time, the little starlet could be found jamming with her school’s jazz band and practising for countless hours and eventually passing many of her grades for The Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) piano exams. After returning back to her hometown of Vienna, the self-taught writer is believed to have developed a certain mood disorder which would affect every aspect of her current life. As a result of struggling with her mental health throughout high school, in the beginning of the year 2020, she decided to take matters into her own hands and began showcasing her many talents publicly. From poetry, song and essay writing to photography and videography, Laurène is no stranger to self-discovery and takes every opportunity she gets to express herself creatively.
