Reason for being a BNOC: Started a Just Giving page to fund her flight from Malaysia to Newcastle for the NUSCC ball

"She's so jammy that on the flight home she got a free seat upgrade and the Megabus driver personally gave her a lift to Newcastle in his car. Then when she actually arrives back in the Toon after 30+ hrs of travelling, the first place she rocks up is the Ski AGM. She got so fucked in the space of an hour that she physically couldn't make her speech, and she managed to make her 6.10am flight back to Malaysia the next morning."
