“I started studying at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) doing their Diploma of Stage and Screen. I had the pleasure for many years of growing as a performer and an individual with the help of Drama Works. Drama Works sculpted a new world for me, taking my passion, what I loved and helped make it possible to do throughout every aspect of my life. With their unique vision, they gave me opportunities to perform and create. I have been able to collaborate ideas for One Act Play Festivals, as well as compete in the circuit which allowed me to meet many influencers of theatre and other like-minded people. I was lucky enough to student-teach, lead workshops and even teach on my own regularly. Drama Works took me to New Zealand with them to tour schools giving children the gift of drama. I participated in teaching drama to those with disabilities, watching others grow socially and in performance is one of the most rewarding feelings you can get. Drama Works is a platform of opportunities for personal, social and performance growth. Shaping individuals through the art of drama. I have a lot of amazing memories because of Drama Works. I’ve always looked up to my teacher, Louisa, as a huge mentor and role model and I cannot thank her enough for the amazing opportunities she has bestowed on me over the years. She has given me a lot of pushes in the right direction and I simply wouldn’t be who I am today or have learnt what I have without being a part this family of passionate people. Thank you so much Drama Works”.
