And for the final article in our International Woman of the Day series, Catriona Reilly goes for Lara Croft.
Like many people from my generation, I wasted a large chunk of my formative years gripping a PlayStation controller. I spent so much of my childhood in the company of that noisy grey box that I often wonder what I could have achieved had I cultivated hobbies or pursued academic interests instead. Perhaps I could have been a neurosurgeon or a laureate, or maybe I would simply have a better grasp of basic grammar. But, I would have also probably developed crippling emotional issues and I would never have discovered my childhood hero – Lara Croft.
