Good Things founder Lucy on her late gap year as featured in Stylist magazine

Good Things founder Lucy's journey featured in Stylist

Lucy was recently featured in Stylist's article The benefits of a late gap year

Good Things founder Lucy contributed to Stylist's article about taking a gap year in your 30s.

"In 2017 I turned 30, threw my life as I knew it up in the air, and packed my massive backpack. I spent 14 months travelling and on charity projects across the world. The experience made me re-think how I wanted to live my life and inspired me to set up Good Things." explains Lucy, founder of Good Things

"Would I recommend taking the chance to take some time out to explore in your late 20s, 30s, or actually at any point? YES!" Read the article for more convincing (you've been warned!).
