life

What a year I have had with lots of ups and downs. I wanted to share with you some of my greatest achievements and some of my fantastic memories!

This year Riding for the Disabled celebrated their 50th Anniversary with the campaign called 50 Faces. I am so proud to say that I was one of the faces for this campaign. Riding for the Disabled don’t only help lives they save them!

Some of you may already know this but this year I was accepted onto Performing Arts Level 2 course at College. I have wanted to do this course for a long time but had lots of ups and downs trying to get accepted onto a course I really wanted to do due to my disability but I’ve finally done it and I’m enjoying every minute of it!

Edinburgh Fringe Festival

This year I went on tour with The Theatre Shed with our production of CapeAbility I got to perform at Brighton Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It was an amazing experience full of lots of memories I will cherish forever. I can’t wait to go on tour again in 2021.

This year I started doing Dressage competitions online with Dressage Anywhere. I competed with Billy and he has been amazing I had such a good time competing with him. I have also enjoyed helping to train him so that more riders have the joy of riding with him. He is such a star!

Earlier this year I went on a Vlogging workshop with National RDA in London and learnt all about the Art of Vlogging run by The Media Trust. I then entered a short YouTube Video I made about the RDA into the vlogging competition. I made it to the semi finals and got to go to London for the day to learn more about YouTube and vlogging as well as meeting more young creatives and having talks with well known YouTubers.

This year I became the blogger for The Theatre Shed’s Blog. Find out more about The Theatre Shed visit https://thetheatreshed.co.uk

I am on the front cover of RDA’s Handbook 2019 with Billy and my helper Hazel going on a hack in the woods.

This year I started doing hair and makeup modelling for students at Iver Makeup Academy at Pinewood Studios.

I have recently joined talent agency Industry Haus as an actor and model. I can’t wait to see what the future holds… maybe your see me on your screens. My profile should be up soon please check it out at http://www.industryhaus.com

Can’t wait to see what adventures 2020 brings us!

My 2018 Achievements

life

What a year it has been full of its ups and downs, highs and lows and everything in between. To celebrate the year I have had, I thought I would share with you some of my most happiest and proudest achievements of 2018. These achievements have made me have one of the biggest smiles on my face and they have helped me to get through those not so good days.

1. This year I have started volunteering as a Retail Volunteer at a charity shop. I have made quite a few of my own window displays. I have now started to serve customers at the till by myself.

2. This year I have started to volunteer at a farm as an Animal Care Volunteer. I enjoy looking after all the animals as well as learning more about how to care for them all.

3.  This year I have  joined The Theatre Shed as a Youth Theatre Student. This year for Christmas we did a Production of The Snow Queen I played one of the three Gerda’s.

4. At the beginning of this year I did work experience at a theatre as an Evening Theatre Usher for the Stage Production of The Jungle Book.

5. This year was the year I started this blog!

6. I have just started to learn British Sign Language; I can’t wait to keep learning more next year.

7. On the 1st July 2018 I took part in the Stagecoach World Record Attempt. We did this to celebrate Stagecoach’s 30 Years Anniversary. The World Record we are attempting to break is for the largest simultaneous performance of one show. The production we did was Beauty and The Beast. We are still waiting to find out if we have set a new world record.

8. This year at the Riding for the Disabled Group I go to I helped to train a new member of the family a pony called Billy. I absolutely loved doing this because now other RDA riders can have the joy of riding him!

9. I helped my local Recovery College as a Social Media Volunteer for a few months. I found and posted inspirational quotes and some photos of student’s fabulous work.

10. I gave supported living the best go I could even though it did not work out.
