I’ve been living in Lyon for 6 years, but how did I end up here?
I was born in south Wales and grew up all over the UK (apart from a short stint in Germany), moving often because my dad was in the military. I’ve lost count of the number of houses I’ve lived in (at least 15 before the time I went to university).
After finishing school, I spent the next 4 years studying languages and working abroad. My degree was in Arabic and French at the University of Leeds, which included a year in Morocco and 2 months in Lille. During the summers, I worked on a campsite in Brittany for a few months as well as Disneyland Paris (no, I didn’t dress up as Mickey!).
Straight after graduation, I landed myself a job as an in-house translator for a translation agency in France. So, I packed my bags and moved to the small town of Laval. After 6 months learning the tricks of the trade, I decided to move to Lyon and set myself up as a freelancer.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
