Hello!


Recommended Posts

Hello! My name is Leah and I'd like to introduce myself.

I'm from North Yorkshire but I now live in Manchester with my boyfriend Huw. I'm a freelance actor and have worked in several areas of the industry including UK tours of New Dawn Fades, A Christmas Carol and Power & Conflict poetry. I have toured around schools educating children on social issues and engaging them with topics and texts they are studying at GCSE level. I also have a lot of experience with interactive and immersive style theatre including shows such as The Crystal Maze Live Experience. When I'm not acting, I work as a disabled student support worker for university students who require academic, non-medical help with their degrees. It is a uniquely different role depending on the student and I take part in a mixture of different areas including note taking for lectures, scribing and reading for exams and sighted guides around campus. The students I work with are all incredible and put in tremendous effort into their studies and it's an honour to help them on their academic journey.

On a personal note, I'm a big reader and I have a blog where I review the books I read (I get through around 50 a year!) I also love baking bread, making my own jam and watching nature documentaries. My heroes are David Attenborough and David Bowie and I love listening to all kinds of music, mostly classics from the 70s and 80s. I've started learning BSL during lockdown and I am really enjoying it. It links in with acting using facial expressions and I can't wait to build my confidence up even more with it!

 

Thank you for reading and have a lovely day,

 

Leah
