Una had already lived in three countries and learned three languages by the time she was 9. She has a hard time staying still but has now seemingly settled in Lille, France, for a near-record of 5 years. It helps that the city is just a hop and a skip away from Paris and London, two of her regular haunts. Una studied languages and European politics before working in the arts for a few years, but is now a freelance writer and translator, and loving her solitary workplace.
