Lauren recently graduated from the University of East Anglia with a BA in History. During her undergraduate degree, she specialised in English politics and religion c.500 – c.1600 and completed a dissertation on the Marian Counter-Reformation. She is now pursuing a MA in Medieval History which she hopes will lead to further study. In her free time, Lauren enjoys listening to rock music (particularly Queen), finding her way out of escape rooms and practising classical ballet.
