Marketing and PR Intern

Hi, I'm Louisa, an English Literature finalist at Durham University. In my spare time I love reading (of course!), running and pilates. My favourite book of all time is Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar and my current favourite is Milk Teeth by Jessica Andrews: both feature strong but fallible and vulnerable female protagonists!
