Acting has been my ambition ever since I was a little girl. I’d join after-school drama clubs, watch behind the scenes of a breath-taking movie and think to myself, “it must be so thrilling to be one person and suddenly then walk into another room and be someone else, completely different from who you were before”. That’s when I decided I wanted to be a part of something so creative and powerful, to experience someone else’s life, be put in their shoes. How they feel at that very moment and how they change through time. I've been acting and participating in acting groups since I was eight years old. This includes many nativity plays being different characters each year. I've performed with my primary school and took part in after-school drama clubs, for four years until graduation.
I then went onto studying drama at secondary school, becoming more involved going out and seeing more theatre. One that really motivated me and became my favourite Theatre/musical piece was Blood Brothers to which I saw at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry in 2013. That’s when I took my acting career to the next level and began to study Performing Arts at my local college. Here I was able to learn about myself and improve my techniques as an actor. I was also introduced to musical theatre, coming out of my comfort zone and heightening my confidence in my vocal skills. I’ve been able to perform in front of live audiences within musical and theatre. I've performed in performances such as “Smashed” (2015), “Ash Girl” (2016), “Rock of Ages”(2017) and so on.
Furthermore, I’m also participating in a Senior Youth Theatre group at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry. This also includes performing in a variety of theatre work with them such as “The Impossible Language of the Time” (2015) and “Tethered to the Light” (2017). On the contrary, this experience has helped me mould into an improved actor and be open to further opportunities such as writing and directing. Which landed me in a role to also write and direct the depression scene for "Tethered to the Light". With being connected through the Belgrade Theatre, I’ve worked amongst other theatre companies such as Frantic Assembly and Highly Sprung. Performing in shows such as “Transformation” (2016), “Absolute Truth” (2017) and “Oxygen” (2018).
I’m now currently studying a BA Hons Theatre & Professional Practice at Coventry University, where I’m adapting and pushing my limits further whilst taking on new challenges.
