Lauren James seeks individual identity
Reece James’ Sister Seeks Individual Identity – Words from Lauren James
In an interview, Lauren James, the talented England forward, expressed her desire to establish her own identity rather than being solely recognized as “Reece James’ sister” during this summer’s World Cup. As a 21-year-old star for Chelsea, she shares the same club with her older brother, who is also an England international, often leading to her name being associated with his.
She stated, “I don’t want to be labeled as ‘Lauren James, Reece’s sister,’ or simply referred to as ‘that’s Lauren James, Reece’s sister’.”
Lauren emphasized her aspiration to forge her own path and be acknowledged as an individual, saying, “I aspire to create my own legacy and be recognized as ‘this is Lauren James’.”
Acknowledging the prominence of men’s football at present, she acknowledged that it’s natural for people to occasionally associate her with her brother, stating, “There are times when I may have been referred to as ‘so and so’s sister,’ but it doesn’t affect me greatly because I am aware of my own career.”
