Chloe Ferguson

I’m beginning Queen’s University in September, studying English and Social Anthropology, and my creativity will be brought into my role here in the Media Team through blog posts and photographs. I’ve been volunteering here for 3 years and my favourite part about Mount Stewart is mythology and the stories of Edith that are portrayed here.
