    Additional Information

    What has helped me as an actor is my life experiences:

    Since the age of 11 my parents owned a shop in Brixton. Over these 4 years we lived through 2 Brixton riots. My father died 2 years later and my my mum brought up 3 kids on her own. Constantly bullied at school and discriminated in the workplace, I have had many ups and downs but I always worked hard.

    I have learned how to channel my experiences and feelings in work and life into characters.

    I undertook a lot of personal development for 10 years as through a voluntary organisation Junior Chamber International from which I learnt how to speak in public.

    Also, I have been previously a trustee for a social enterprise, a charity to support unemployed people who carried knives and guns to get skills and find work in Tottenham, North London

    My background is in urban regeneration and economic development i.e. government funding used to support people into work, support businesses, improve the public realm/ environment. This work involved engaging everyday people on the street to company board directors. Also, worked as BID / Town centre manager in both Twickenham and Richmond. Still receive an income from a MLM business at which I achieved a senior leadership position as a Group Leader and undertook lots of training to attain this level. So I have a wide variety of work experiences to draw playing different characters: @anthony-gopaul-715479

    I have a degree and 2 postgraduate diplomas.

    I write my own material as well including a children’s book which I am free writing. Also I have written quite a few poems during lockdown
