iMy first major acting role was playing the part of Aladdin in 'Aladdin' in my dance schools annual show, I learnt a lot from this, how to handle learning so many lines, sing under pressure, interact with others on stage and also perform well. What I learnt the most was how much I love to perform! After that, I performed many times with my drama club at school, where we put together shows ourselves, learning all different aspects of theatre as well as the performance side of it. Attending Bird College confirmed my enthusiasm for acting and drama, and my lessons and experience at performing here have set it stone that acting is definitely a huge passion of mine.

Modeling

Modeling experience

Part-time model - paid commercial work


My first experience for modelling was when I was a baby, when I won a competition for a contract with Littlewoods catalogue. I took modelling more seriously age 13, when I started hair modelling for different hair salons, competing in inter-salon competitions, doing catwalk shows and also campaigns to advertise the salon.

I have modelled jewellery for Halo Jewellers, which appeared as a double and back page spread in many magazines.

I have vast experience in athletic style shoots, portraying a fit and healthy lifestyle to promote a new gym. Also, I have posed for an artist and their photographic exhibition for a gallery in Central London.

As well as many photo shoots, I also have a lot of experience in cat walk modelling as a hair model and pageants. I was Miss Market Harborough 2010 and reached the semi finals of Miss England 2010; I came 2nd in Miss Northampton 2011 as well as reaching the final of Face of London 2011.

I started dancing at the age of 3, where I took lessons in ballet, tap, jazz, singing and drama. Whilst at this school, I was asked to perform with Debbie McGee's Ballet Company and also had the amazing opportunity to dance a jazz routine at Her Majesty's Theatre London. I also regularly took part in disco/freestyle competitions, which definitely built up my confidence as a dancer competing against children from across the country. Age 11, I intensified my training, still in ballet, jazz and tap, but also started musical theatre dance and gymnastics. My singing and drama training also intensified here.

Around 3-4 times a year I competed in Dance Festivals, taking part in group dances, duets and trios and solos ranging from tap, song and dance, lyrical and my own choreography. I took exams, always passing with distinction and even being invited to compete at the IDTA Musical Theatre Awards for a high grade for one exam. For tap, I took teaching exams, gaining over 90%. We had an annual show, in which I played main roles as a dancer and singer, playing the part of Aladdin in 'Aladdin'.

Age 12, I auditioned successfully to join The Urdang Academy, London as an associate, travelling to London every Sunday which I continued to do for four years. During this time, we did many shows, which I loved, and the highlight was to successfully audition to perform at Move It! 2007. This really helped me gain confidence as a dancer and taught me how much dedication pays off, as when I auditioned for colleges to train full time, I successfully auditioned for every college I applied to; The Urdang Academy, Doreen Bird College, LIPA, London Studio Centre and Laine Theatre Arts.

I trained full time in Performing Arts at Doreen Bird College. I am very confident in all aspects of dance; ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, commercial and musical theatre, plus singing and drama.

Before graduationg, I gained my first role as a paid featured dancer in Yolanda Be Cool's single 'Le Bump'. Since then, I have appeared as the lead girl in 'Estrilio' by Venilio Evangelista Pan, a Portuguese artist. Another video I took part in is Marcus Collins' 'Mercy'. I also have experience in the Bollywood style of dancer, performing in Karan Pangali's (Just Dance, India) The Dance of Bollywood. I feel totally confident in a whole new genre of dance of commercial Bollywood dance, classical Indian dancing and pure Bollywood.
