How did you find out about Face Front Inclusive Theatre?

Many years ago I went to see a Face Front project on a visit with Enfield council.

Annie interviewed me and I started at Broken Silence. At first I was so scared I didn’t even enter the rehearsal room but now I’m playing all sorts of parts including the lead role in Sandwich Man The Musical!

Also, I recently graduated with a Performance Making Diploma at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama with Access All areas. I learnt lots there, even burlesque and I’m in a show called 'Not F*cking Sorry' at the Soho Theatre.

How has being a Supported Artist helped you develop?

I was very scared at first but now I feel more confident being around other people. And, I have learnt new skills to help with day-to-day life.

What are you doing now?

I continue to be in Broken Silence ands InterACTion and I’m a Makaton trainer.

Also, I work as a (paid) Office Assistant at Enfield Council and volunteer as a Steward at Enfield Football Club.

What would you like to do in the future?

I’m really not sure what my future will hold, but soon I want to retire and spend more time at the library and supporting Chelsea FC.
