I have had a love for the Performing Arts for as long as I can remember. I was always a part of the school productions and was lucky enough to get selected to join the Royal and Derngate youth company which led me to perform at the National Theatre. After Sixth Form in Northampton, I auditioned and got into the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. I was there for 3 years and from there went to Nigeria for a year to learn more about my roots and where my family came from. On returning to the UK, I joined the National Youth Theatre and through that became a young actor with the Lyric Hammersmith and Almeida young companies.
I have now recently been invited to join the National Youth Theatre REP Company. Over 1,000 people audition and I'm 1 of the 16 members that will form the 2019 company.
Alumni consist of;
- Dame Helen Mirren
- Daniel Craig
- Sir Daniel Day-Lewis
- Chiwetel Ejiofor
- Rosalind Pike
The list goes on...
Rep is a full-time commitment over 9 months, 6- 7 days a week which will leave little time for me to work and this is where I need your help! The money I raise will go towards my basic living necessities whilst living in London
Rent: £400/pm x 9 months £3,600
Food: £30/pw x 9 months £1,080
Travel: £158.30/pm zones 1-3 x 9 months £1,424.70
Grand total: £6,104.70
Honestly, every little helps. A £1 could get me a Pot Noodle, so imagine what a tenner could do...
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I would appreciate if you could give this a share. See you soon!
