She started learning ballet at a young age in Malaysia where she attended I-Media Educational Group Dance School. Her training with the I-Media Group was cut short due to moving to Singapore and it was there that she also found a passion for acting, stage productions and music. For almost four years, she was included in productions that were conducted by the Stamford American International School. Through this same school she also trained in vocal lessons and violin lessons. For a short time, she attended Diverse, Dubai, and was training in Hip Hop Dance, however she moved over to Dubai’s Performing Arts Academy, owned and run by Lisa and Scott Lee. This is where she spent large amounts of her extracurricular time training in Trinity Musical Theatre; Performing Art Workshops; Ballet; Jazz; and vocal’s. Separately she has also attended Dubai Desert Dance Workshops and received and award for most dedicated dancer. In terms of my acting, she also prefers not to study one type of acting style and therefore has studied with Kimberly Jentzen and Jeremiah O’Brian and is also a member of the Courtyard Playhouse Theatre where she have attended improvisational theatre classes. She have attended NYFA’s Acting for Film instruction and also attended intensive training for the Dragone La Perle/Year of Tolerance Stage Production directed by Kevin Vincent in the UAE. Not to be taken too lightly, she has also been trained by likes of Suzanne Von Schaack and Alexis Monsanto in movement and presence when on a stage.
She is a very determined teenager and always strive to better herself. She spend a great deal of time writing songs and belting them out whilst coming up with the tune on my guitar. On a daily basis, she continues to develop my acting skills through GCSE Drama, her performing arts academy, and practice her acting brand and running lines in front of my mirror. she would love to be a part of productions where she can further develop my skills.
