Dr. Emily Joy was not the much longed for kind of only child, rather, the ‘we never really planned on you, dear’ kind. She started life as an Airforce daughter in the Outer Hebrides, then moved to Singapore and back to the UK when her father crashed his aeroplane into a water buffalo.
She went to Edinburgh University Medical School with grand plans to save lives and discover sex. Instead she discovered squash, alcohol and the travel bug. She worked for two years in New Zealand, before becoming a GP in York. Soon she was dreaming of the world beyond her cosy back street surgery.
Perhaps two years in Sierra Leone with Voluntary Service Overseas would fulfil her goals?
