Tigan grew up in Cornwall and feels most at home by the sea with her dogs. She obtained her undergraduate degree in English Literature at the University of Sussex before studying for a PGCE. She worked as an English Teacher, then completed her Masters degree at Oxford University before moving to London to work in the education and charity sectors.

Watching the film Babe aged 3 turned Tigan vegetarian for life.

Her dream female mentor would be Greta Thunberg because she’s mobilised millions of people across the world to address and combat climate change and is an incredible and inspiring voice not only for young people, but for all of us.
