What job/study are you doing right now and tell us a little about it?
In college I studied B-Tec Musical Theatre which gave me the skills to venture off to study Acting, playwriting and directing at London College Of Music. My course allows me to contribute all of my acting, dance and singing skills into my exams as well as being able to direct and write my own scrips and plays. I also have acting lessons taught by RADA graduates and teachers which allows me to have the similar training that RADA offers to their students.
Did you do any further/higher education?
I am currently studying at London College of Music
How did you decide on your career path and what is/was most interesting about your work?
I decided on my career path when studying at St Cuthert's when I had Mrs Anderson for Drama. I realised that I could continue to be an actress and I didn’t have to study an acedemic subject if acting was what I wanted to study.
Can you share a couple of fond memories of your time at St Cuthbert's?
At St Cuthbert's I always remember the annual trip to London. I remember watching Wicked on the West End and it feels surreal that I now live in London.
Did you have a favourite/influential teacher? What made them so important to you?
My most influential teacher at my time at St Cuthbert’s had to be Mrs Anderson. She made me realise how much I loved being on stage which has allowed me to come as far as I am now. All of her support made my time at St Cuthbert’s a time to remember.
What advice would you give our current students?
Advice I would give to current students is the best thing to do is stand out and to be remembered. At acting auditions it is always important that we as actors stand out from the rest of the crowd to the panel. I think this applies throughout, to stand out is very important. It can be normal in school life to want to blend in with the crowd, but this is not the gateway to success.
