I have been studying drama for the past 5 years at St Mary’s Anglican Girls School. It was never my intention for this to be a central focus for my artistic endeavours. Rather I thought drama would bring me confidence and improve my public speaking. Now I have come to realise that I love the dramatic arts as much as fashion, fine arts and design and so am continuing drama studies in year 12.
Whether this will result in me being front of camera sometime in the future I do not know. Regardless I would like to continue acting even if only within amateur productions for my local community.
My most recent drama assignment has required me to write and then present a performance as a solo. I’ve really enjoyed being given the latitude to come up with my own ideas, themes and dialogue and then actually perform it in front of my teachers and peers.
