For the last few years, I have thrown myself into countless creative roles, in order to get as much experience as possible. From producing events at Royal Albert Hall and Brixton Jamm, to volunteering for a HIV charity, to working on radio projects for Roundhouse, Global and Student Pride – I’ve tried a bit of everything in order to find out what I ultimately want to do. Through this work, I have discovered that I’m really passionate about diversity and inclusion, so I couldn’t be more excited to be working with the Learning & Engagement Team at Sadler’s Wells Theatre and Stratford Circus Arts Centre.
I’m really looking forward to gaining as much knowledge as possible from my roles, the STEP cohort, and my mentor. STEP has given me financial stability and better mental health, as well as a chance to use my creativity and passion every day. I can’t wait to see how far we’ve all progressed by the end of the programme!
