Location: Northwich, Cheshire.

I am currently in my 2nd year of studying History and Theology at the University of Birmingham. I am also an ambassador for the University as well as volunteering at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

I am a LEAP ambassador because… It is a wonderful opportunity to gain professional insight into the different roles available within the company. The Birmingham Royal Ballet is such a prestigious company and I feel privileged to have been accepted onto the programme. I believe it will help me find the sector I want to enter into after university.

What are you passionate about? My main passion is performing, especially acting. I have been involved in productions such as The Crucible and most recently performed in Girls Like That at my local theatre. I also enjoy musical theatre, dance, playing netball and doing charity work.

Fun fact about me… In 2018 I spent 3 months in Hanoi, Vietnam volunteering at The Hope Centre, a day centre for children with additional needs such as autism, cerebral palsy and down syndrome. This was the most challenging yet rewarding time of my life so far.
