20 under 40: Luciana Berger

Age: 30
Labour/Co-Operative, Liverpool Wavertree

After five months in parliament, Luciana Berger was appointed a shadow minister for energy by Ed Miliband. She served on the NUS executive as a student and worked for Accenture and the NHS confederation before entering parliament. Luciana is well known beyond the Commons, thanks in part to her romantic attachments, which are said to have involved Euan Blair (son of Tony), the former MP Siôn Simon and fellow "20 under 40" star Chuka Umunna.
