To improve her employability Lucy decided to do a Masters in Shakespeare. Her favourite play is Much Ado About Nothing - appropriate considering she’s now been at university for almost five years... Growing up in Newcastle, Lucy always wanted to be a travel journalist. Someone needs to tell her that going to Zone 5 every now and again does not count.
