The thing about me is that I never know what to say about myself. I've been known to be one of the few who loves to work, especially at my age. I've been working Part Time/Full Time since the age of 16 in retail and bar, ranging from simply sales assistant to supervisor and deputy manager in the bar industry. I have always had a love for music and movement and took it further to study at the Urdang Academy London Islington, where I am on the BA Hons Degree in Professional Dance and Musical Theatre landing myself with a full scholarship from my audition. I am a very friendly and bubbly person with a welcoming and characterized personality.
