Lauren who is originally from Derby has a number of summer camps with the GB team before heading off to South Africa.
Lauren will be tweeting her experiences and stories while in South Africa (follow her on: @steaders_1) but here is her netball story so far, told by the netballing superstar herself:
My Netballing Career so far....
This summer is going to be one of the most exciting summers of my life. I have recently been selected for the Great British Universities team, set to tour South Africa at the end of June, competing in the World University Championships.
This, inevitably, is my biggest achievement of my netball career to date. It’s occasions like this that encourage me to reflect on my experiences so far and to appreciate the opportunities I’ve had, which have enabled me to achieve a place on the BUCS GB Netball Team.
