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.

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!

The Theatre Shed Takes CapeAbility To Brighton In Collaboration With Brighton Shed

disability

Last weekend I had an amazing time with my Theatre Shed family and Brighton Shed. It was our first day of The Theatre Shed going on tour. With a our production CapeAbility, which is all about each and everyone of us finding our unique super powers and showing the world that we are all CAPEABLE!

Throughout this whole production we explore super powers, friendships , mental heath and struggles in the education system.

We performed at The Brighton Open Air Theatre the day was great and we were really lucky with the lovely warm sunny weather. We did two performances of CapeAbility during the day.

I really enjoyed doing the movement pieces and having to use my imagination to help create some of the scenes of the production. I enjoyed using drums to help create tension during some parts of the show.

I loved performing at an open air theatre as I have never performed at an open air theatre I was a bit nervous to begin with but by the end of the day I didn’t want it to end.

I found that performing at an open air theatre helped me to develop my acting skills because it made me feel more aware of what was going happening on stage and how to communicate with the audience at different angles as your audience is all around you.

I really loved the day and can’t wait till our next show!
