"I started dancing when I was 13 years old after performing in a production of The Wizard of Oz at a local theatre where I lived.  From then I have always had the passion to perform and strived to take the next step of practical training, with the ambition of moving onto a university-styled performing arts college.  Luckily I pursued this ambition and I am currently in the first term of my first year studing a BA (Hons) in Theatre Dance at London Studio Centre situated in North Finchley at the artsdepot.  I am loving every minute of the training at this college and feel that I have got used to the life at London Studio Centre and toLondon itself.  The teachers are amazing, my peers are friendly and it's nice to be in an atmosphere where everyone has the passion to perform and strive to be the best they can be as a triple threat performer. The audition process was a daunting thing for me but when I got the opportunity of being chosen to do an extra audition for The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Scholarship I was more than thrilled to be whittled down to the final few of the auditioning process.  Then, when I found out that I was the person being awarded the scholarship, I was more than ecstatic that, with hard work and determination, I could succeed in things I never thought I would be able to.  Without the help of The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Scholarship I would not have been able to afford to train at such a well-established dance college.  It helped with a large part of the tuition fees, which enabled me to accept my place at the college, and I do not regret doing so."
