After growing up in the marine, rugged landscape of Brittany, France, Natalie developed an appetite for languages and the open. She holds a BA in French, Spanish and Modern Greek from the University of Cambridge and an MA in European Studies from University College London. She is currently earning her MA in International Journalism at City University London. Natalie is fluent in English, French and Spanish and has a reasonable command of the German language, together with a smattering of Russian and Greek. In addition to languages and foreign affairs, she has a soft spot for environmental journalism and the London Review of Books. Her work has appeared in The World Weekly, Culture Whisper and the Spanish environmental magazine El Ecologista.
