    About me

    I am a mixed race, (White and Chinese) young Actress based in London. As the Daughter of a Choreographer and a former Model, I have been exposed to theatre, film and television from birth.

    I am Grade 6 in both Drama and Musical Theatre, as well as in Ballet with the RAD, having achieved Distinction in all 3 disciplines, at all levels so far. I am also in vocational Intermediate Ballet with the RAD.

    I made my Professional theatre debut at the age of 8 in the ensemble of 'The Wizard of Oz', at the Theatre Royal St. Helens (after auditioning whilst visiting my Grandmother) and I have appeared in several shows in local theatres in Surrey for my Ballet and Musical Theatre schools. I successfully auditioned to be in the Young Company of the Rose Theatre in Kingston and so far I have played the role of Titania in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Maria in 'Twelfth Night', Fern in 'Charlotte's Web', Bets/Mrs Bumble in 'Oliver Twist', Lady Dashwood in 'Black Beauty' and Tom in 'Treasure Island'. I was due to be playing the central role of Telemachus a new stage adaptation of 'The Odyssey' in June this year which sadly had to be postponed due to the national lockdown. I have since moved up from the Junior Company to the Lower Senior Company and we are currently rehearsing online for an audio version of DNA by Dennis Kelly, in which I will be playing the role of Jan..

    In Music I am Grade 6 in Piano with the ABRSM and I was awarded a Scholarship in Music to the High School I attend. As part of my scholarship I am also now studying Guitar - in which I am Grade 3.

    I enjoy going to school very much and I am a member of the Choir, the Orchestra, I am a Principal in the Elite Dance Company and the Drama Company - with whom I played the role of Michael Hobbs in 'Elf'. (It's an all Girls Arts status High School). I passed my 11 plus, I am in the Higher Ability Academic program and I was awarded Student of the Year for Year 7. I have been Captain of my Form and a Year 9 Ambassador.

    I would describe myself as an 'avid reader'. Having previously won my Primary school's competition to select an entry for the BBC 500 Word Writing Competition. My High School uses the Accelerated Reader Program and as of March 2019 (aged 12), my AR Reading Age was determined as 16 years and 2 months.

    I am a hard worker, I am well traveled both internationally and within the UK and I think I mix and communicate well with people of all ages.

    I am very proud to have won the 2019 Actor's Choice section of the Mandy Monologue competition for Young Talent.
