“I’ve been taught so many new skills, including scriptwriting and directing, as well as improving and developing my acting technique and vocal skills. I’ve appeared in some great shows including Blypsy (in which I played a dog!). Successfully auditioning for the National Youth Theatre was one of the best moments of my life. To be surrounded by so many talented people was daunting, but the confidence I’ve gained at West Thames College helped me believe in myself.”
