Lucy Cumming: Hi! My name is Lucy and I’m one of the French to English translators for the GIMUN online blog. I’m 23 years old and am from Edinburgh. My Undergraduate degree is in French and Spanish from the University of Leeds and at the moment, I am studying a Masters degree in Applied Translation Studies (also at the University of Leeds), with a view to pursuing a career in professional translation afterwards (if all goes to plan!). My main interests are languages, travel, music, film and I like watching sport too (especially rugby – even though Scotland are not doing too well at the moment unfortunately!). I decided to volunteer to work for this blog simply to gain some experience of translating to deadlines and working with a variety of different texts. I am looking forward to translating the articles and hope I can do a reasonably good job!
