I have been volunteering with Nightstop for the last 5 years as a host, and over that time I have met many of the young people who come through Nightstop and watched them grow with the support and kindness that is given by all of those involved. Making this film about the awareness of homelessness in the New Forest has been a great learning experience and putting yourself into the shoes of a young person really helps you to understand the terrifying situations they find themselves in. It is a great honour to be able to help anyone who comes to stay with us in our home, the simple act of opening your door to somebody can mean so much, and I am grateful I have been able to help and work with Nightstop.
I have recently finished my A levels, I gained distinctions in my BTEC national diploma in performing arts production and English literature. I plan to do a four year degree course in events management at university. The events industry is one I am passionate about; I haven’t yet decided which specific area to work in, I would love to be involved in festival organising and planning.
