As mentioned above, i studied piano for 5 years, so i keep playing with it from time to time. I also used to sing in a professional choir (baroque, and pop hits) and in a duet with a friend of mine.

Zoë Jellicoe, Operational English Content Editor

The best gift that you have ever received?

A friend once made a treasure hunt for me as a birthday present, and hid rhyming clues for me around Dublin that used compass directions and famous statues - that was probably the most adventurous present!

The worst movie you have seen?

Probably Inception, responsible for spawning more pseudo-intellectual bro party talk than The Dark Knight. Though I hear Transformers 2 is pretty horrific.

3 things that you would do if you won the lottery?

I'd take off and go traveling for a year or two, then I'd launch a literary journal and use the rest to start a video game collective.
