Location: Coventry

Age: 17

I am currently in my final year of Sixth Form at WMG Academy for young engineers studying, Business, Double Science and Engineering. Next year I hope to go University and study Aviation Operations with a commercial flight licence.

I am a LEAP Ambassador because I cannot attend a Performing Arts College as I am studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects in college and wish to pursue a STEM career. I still wanted to do something dance and arts related and this programme seemed perfect as I get see first-hand how a professional dance company operates. I also hope to achieve a Bronze Arts Award as a bonus!

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about dance and have been dancing for as long as I can remember, it was always something I excelled at and I’ll always enjoy it. My dance styles include ballet, commercial and jazz.

Interesting fact: I am multi-lingual and as well as English I can speak in Arabic and Swahili.
