“At BCE I studied Performing Arts, where I learnt about Drama in ways I didn’t expect. They put me in an environment studying alongside young, hungry and talented people with a similar vision, providing help and support for each other. I formed friends for life and have some of the best memories I’ve experienced from BCE. I now work in a Pupil Referral Unit as a mentor and I incorporate my drama techniques when assisting and leading creative arts lessons. I’m also a music artist writing, releasing and performing my own content. The skills I’ve gained have opened many doors for me along my journey.”
