Mind the Gap welcomed me with open arms and it has really boosted my confidence. It’s just wonderful!
My sister heard about Mind the Gap and we went to a couple of their taster sessions together. I was invited to audition for Mind the Gap’s Making Theatre course and I was accepted straight away.
After spending 3 years as a student, I was asked to join the Acting Company, which was very exciting. My biggest achievement during my time at Mind the Gap was learning a 13 page script for Never Again in one night. The day after I only had to glance at the script a couple of times.
I tried other organisations for possible employment but down to a lack of qualifications and having to disclose my disabilities, I couldn’t get work. Mind the Gap welcomed me with open arms and it has really boosted my confidence. It’s just wonderful!
