    Additional Information

    In my spare time I enjoy making cosplays and going to conventions - cosplay is dressing up that people like me take extremely seriously! I am not fantastic at the whole cosplaying thing, so far I've only done simple cosplays, but I am attempting to get better at it as I really enjoy it!

    I am also learning how to play the guitar. I'm not very good at the moment, I can sort of do picking patterns, I'm not very confident with strumming. I don't give myself enough time to practise longer than I want to, mostly because of the lack of confidence I have in playing - though I do really enjoy myself when I do play!

    If I'm not cosplaying or practising my guitar, you can find me making videos for my YouTube channel which is something I really enjoy! I mostly do the YouTube thing for the nostalgia - I like taking pictures but I also really love taking videos of events! I mostly make vlogs of when I go to conventions or holidays. I only started uploading October 2018, but I'm really enjoying keeping my channel going!

    I am also pretty good at baking - I'm not Bake Off worthy yet, but I do enjoy making simple cakes and biscuits. I am trying to get loads better at baking because I find baking relaxing and who doesn't love cake?!

    About me

    I've been interested in acting since I was eleven years old, I've been with youth theatres and amateur dramatics ever since. For four years I was with the Hazlitt Youth Theatre and for two years I was with the Pauline Quirke Academy.

    I've done a screen acting summer course with the National Youth Theatre which went on for a week August 2018, which was a lot of fun and really interesting. At the end of the week, we had a mock audition which was being assessed by an actual casting director.

    I've also done two years worth of screen acting at City Lit college in Covent Garden. There were three courses: Beginners, Improvers and Advance - I was taught by actors, Gary Grant, Stephen Billington and Douglas Rollin. I'm going back to City Lit this year (2019) and I'm doing their part time performing arts course which starts in September 2019 and ends in June 2020.

    In August 2019, I went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with PQA and we performed a new musical called "So-Called Gen Z" for five days, our second performance got chosen to film for the Scottish Archives. In the early 2019, we performed Private Peaceful at Stockwell Playhouse which was assessed by Guildford Trinity College, we got a distinction for the performance. In 2018, we performed [BLANK] by Alice Birch at the Bush Theatre for the National Theatre Connections.
