    2018BA (H) English Literature and PGCE in Secondary Teaching in EnglishNottingham Trent University

    About me

    If there’s any time to pursue your dreams, it is now!

    Within the last couple of years, I have completed my BA (H) English Literature degree - yes many years of studying the great Shakespeare - to also completing my PGCE secondary teaching in English - yes I started to teach Shakespeare a year later!

    Through all of which, I had the opportunity to be creative with my classes and explore the theatrical elements. This urged me to finally pursue acting. I have always had a love, passion and excitement for this line of work (can you even call it work?) - and to have the opportunity to be in a career where you explore extreme emotions, understanding character analysis, continuous self development and work with other creatives is an opportunity of a lifetime.

    I have started to get involved in small projects, develop my skills in dance, gym and running, regularly attend actors workshops, involved in training workshops in Canada and continuously understand the theory behind acting - at the moment I am studying Larry Moss The Intent To Live.

    I have also done extra work and more recently, was part of a soft drinks commercials for their Middle Eastern campaign so I am highly professional, passionate and committed on set.

    I would love the opportunity to get involved in short firms, commercials, exciting projects and make it to film and TV to expand my experience, challenge myself with different characters and bring my own flair to the commercial industry.
