We asked our new Content Strategist, Laura Turner, a few weird and wonderful questions to get to know her a little better.


So Laura....

Reality TV

The latter

How did you first start working in digital?

What is your favourite thing about working in digital?

There are always opportunities to learn about something new, plus things are constantly changing so it never gets boring.

A cat! Just because they have it pretty easy compared to the rest of the animal kingdom.

I’ve done the superhero name generator too. My name is Scorpion Mask. I have the ability to transform myself into a super-powered scorpion with increased strength, speed and intelligence. Nice one.

It’s making a comeback.

Something about wanting to be close to you.

What's the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you?

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, what does your milkshake bring to the table?

A flavoursome experience.

Where did you grow up, and why?

Rochdale - because up until about a year ago, I had no desire to ever move anywhere else.

Tell us a surprising secret about yourself

I can reveal that I can’t drive and have no desire to learn even though I am being forced to by my boyfriend.

What was the last book you read?

Labor Day – Joyce Maynard
