'I was very excited to hear that I had been offered the job. It's a fantastic creative team, a beautiful story and my first time doing a tour! My time at Trinity Laban was very special. I met my best friends, and learnt the value of working hard with full committment. It also taught me to stay humble and not expect anything handed to you on a plate.'
