Meet the flockers: Laura French
18 June 2021
Our Meet The Flockers series gives us a chance to show the humans behind Stephenson Law. We stop, take a moment, and spend some time on the sillier side of life.
From favourite foods, to pet peeves, this series sheds a light on what makes our flock tick.
Do you have any pet peeves?
People eating food when talking to me on the phone.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
Depends what side of the bed I woke up on – it could be a teacher one day or a midwife the next.
What’s something not a lot of people know about you?
I am petrified of anything that flies (as small as butterflies or a bloody great seagull).
What career advice would you give to your younger self?
I’d go back and tell 16 year old me to take a chill pill because I’ve done absolutely fine. In all seriousness:
1) Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, they’re the best way to learn.
2) Never be too embarassed to ask for help.
3) It’s ok to not know what you want your career to look like.
4) The hard work is gonna pay off girl!
