RTE. Lauryn has just graduated from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where she studied English Literature and could often be found reading and writing in her room at the top of a 15th-century turret. She is fascinated by questions of how we read - from whether the blank spaces in poetry can be read as part of the poem, to whether a photograph caption might be considered as a literary art form. In her final examinations, she was awarded 'The Mrs Claude Beddington Prize' for the best overall performance in the Faculty of English, and 'The Cambridge Quarterly Prize' for the best dissertation in English Literature. In October, she will be starting a Masters degree in Modern and Contemporary Literature at the University of Oxford, for which she received a full scholarship. She hopes to eventually teach literature, inspiring others that even in this modern age, a good book can still be more entertaining than scrolling through Instagram. In her spare time, she writes poetry, campaigns for the Student Union, and tells people about the view from her room.
