Lucy Zhu

PhD Student

I am in the first year of my PhD on eSports at the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences. I organise small eSports events and attend tournaments.

I am the head of the eSports section in Huaren Society, leading three teams to play in the UK League of Legends university tournament on behalf of Loughborough. I also enjoy reading and writing - I write stories online as well in Chinese and have written over one million words and have two books finished.

During my application to study my PhD here, I read about a previous Loughborough International Women’s Day online and was very impressed. I am proud that my university has this campaign and I think it is a great opportunity to show the diversity and achievement of women in the University’s family. Also in the eSports field, there have always been gender issues including inequality in careers, so I would like to take any opportunity to speak for women.
