I just keep growing… 

First off, we all know I am not talking about my size as I have been this ‘shortarse’ height since I was 13. Yesterday I decided to look over my 2014 – this being photos, social media posts and journal entries. Needless to say this made me quite emotional. The following is how I sum up…

I was here a year ago…

Waking up to my Facebook feed buzzing with exciting posts from AMTAites on there way to New York definitely takes me back to a year ago when I made the same trip with all those wonderful people. I would never have imagined that a year later I would be sat here a month and a…

The Answers I Thought I’d Find…

I have just under two months left in this brilliant city and I only now realise that all the answers that I thought I’d find while I was here have eluded me. In fact more questions have been added to the list of never ending soul searching yet to do. This is how I see…

Jack of all trades, Master of none – BULLS**T… 

No single person has just one path or one single interest in life. This is truer for me now than ever. Everything that I am being taught, not only at school but in life, is making me open my mind to all the things that I had only dared to snatch a thought about before…

I Dare You…

There is something I cant quite get my head around and that is loss. I’ve never been great with understanding loss in all its forms. A loss of a friendship baffles me, a loss of an ideal makes me wonder what I stand for, a loss of faith in someone makes me want to build…

The Road Ahead

So as my first day at Lee Strasberg has come and gone, all the first day jitters are no longer and now its time to get where I wanna be. My acting journey at Strasberg has just begun and I am excited! I wanna explore what I can do, push my boundaries and achieve what…
