I am currently studying English Language, Sociology and BTEC Media in my first year of sixth form.

I am a LEAP Ambassador because I would like to gain an insight into what it is like working for arts organisations such as Birmingham Royal Ballet and challenge myself to explore different opportunities. I also want to stand out to future employers and believe this programme will do that.

I am passionate about helping others feel included and I’m the type of person who will introduce themselves to someone who looks as though they might be lonely and chat with them.  I love ballet and it has been a part of my life since I was 2 years old! I’m also very interested in the way the media works especially what happens behind the camera.

My first experience of Birmingham Royal Ballet was when I was 5 years old and I attended the Christmas workshops. It felt amazing to be able to dance in the studios that so many incredible dancers that have danced in before me. It made that Christmas even more magical.
