I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for the support I've had along the way
I'm so grateful for the support I've had over the years. And the opportunities that have arisen and been presented as a result of other people's belief in me. It's only right that I do the same for others- and Pay it forward.
I cannot imagine a life without Music and the Performing Arts. It's who I am!
I want to help others have opportunities they might never have dreamed of. That's why I'm proud to support the future of young performers through two very important organisations- The Theatre Royal Plymouth (TRP) and the AYM Presto Campaign by Awards for Young Musicians.
I can still remember the early morning 20-mile bus journey for my favourite part of the summer. Rehearsals for shows at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth! The delightful smell of the sausage rolls I used to grab every morning, as I got off the bus is something I'll never forget.....
..... and the friendships formed, the confidence I gained- and the outstanding commitment and determination I witnessed, and was lucky to be part of.
For many years, every summer of my youth was spent immersed in the world of Music and Theatre. I wanted to take after my big Sis. I loved to perform and couldn't wait for summer to appear again.Through the endless support of various adults- hosting workshops, summer schools and incredible performances. The Theatre Royal has played a huge part in my voyage as a performer. Signing, dancing, playing- various roles and shows. If you're one of the adults who supported me over the years- THANK YOU!
Many years later- it's time for me to Pay it Forward and make sure that future generations get the same opportunities and access to the Arts. That's why I'm proud to support the fundraising efforts of joint generations of performers at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth.
COVID-19 has hit everyone hard- but the Arts sector is one of the biggest hit. It will be a tragedy if the support for Arts for young people is cut and the Theatre closed, due to increased lay-offs and various unforeseen measures that have been implemented over the last few months.
Former performers have joined together to support each other and lift spirits during the COVID lockdown in the UK. And kickstart the campaign of raised awareness to promote support of the arts and the change that future generations will face if something drastic is not done now.
