We asked our new Marketing Assistant Intern Laura Joubert, who’s joined us for three months from France, a few weird and wonderful questions to get to know her a little better.

So Laura...

What's the one thing you can't live without?

My lion cuddly toy called Lionel.

Would you rather cry glue or sneeze marbles?

Sneeze marbles because when I was small I tried with a pea so, apart from the size, it's almost the same!

How did you first start working in digital?

After completing my baccalaureate, I stayed on at university studying a multidisciplinary degree, which allowed me to discover digital marketing, which has since become a passionate of mine, and is the reason why I’m here at I-COM.

What is your favourite thing about working in digital?

Things evolve so often in this area, we learn something new every day.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

I think I would like to be a little mouse because I could sneak around and spy on people without them knowing! Actually, I am already a little snoop - I love to gossip!

If you were a superhero, what superpower would you have and what would be your superhero name?

I would like to control the weather so I can make it sunny all the time. My superhero name would be Laura Qui Brille de Mille Feux, which translates to Laura the Dazzle Girl in English.

Whatever happened to brunch? Why is it not very popular anymore?

We don’t brunch in France, so I don’t know.

Where do pigs come from?

They come from the sky, they come down on small clouds...

Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?

I’m not sure but I guarantee it's not singing!

What nicknames do you have?

Lala and Lolo - not very creative.

Why do birds suddenly appear?

Oh you must have certainly made a mistake! Because of the weather in Manchester, I don’t think we’ll see any soon haha!

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

When I got caught talking about somebody behind their back!

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

Nothing, I don’t like milkshake, sorry!

Where did you grow up, and why?

I grew up in Paris before moving to near Le Mans to be closer to my family.

Tell us a surprising secret about yourself.

Oh no! We are nowhere near close enough yet!

What was the last book you read?

Two Little Girls in Blue, by Mary Higgins Clark
