What were you doing before you were an apprentice?
Before I started my apprenticeship I was completing my A-Levels at The Norwood school. I was studying fashion and textiles and health and social care.
What was the interview process like?
The interview process was very challenging. I had spoken to people who was also going for the job, some of them had experience and I was constantly thinking “I will never get this job, I’m not as skilled as these people!”. Nevertheless I kept a strong mind and went through each round with confidence as it was an opportunity that has now opened many doors for me.
What is the best thing about being an apprentice with the National Theatre?
Being an apprentice at the National Theatre is such a thrilling and creative experience. I’ve worked with so many different people in different departments. Working in the Wigs, Hair and Make-Up department I have been taught things that colleges no longer teach but also things that colleges are teaching to date as the department is so diverse. So many different techniques are in the room, which is great. The best thing about being an apprentice at the NT is how supported I have been, people who I work with know my strengths and my weaknesses and I have been helped relentlessly by my colleagues.
