About Me

I have been on stage and in drama classes since I can remember with a real passion for the craft, I have had unpaid and paid experiences in acting and after taking some time away I want to dive back into it and work in the industry with my whole heart. I have always found it hard to express myself in my day to day life but through acting, music and writing I can express myself without leaving a stone unturned. I feel ready and passionate about acting and any new professional experiences would be truly amazing.
I really enjoy diving into what a character means to me and bringing them to life with a bit of me brushed into the character. As well as speaking and writing fluently in British English, I also speak Wolof and Mandinka, two of many languages spoken in Western Africa.
