Some of my memories from the youth theatre were the buzz we all felt before a show. Plus the excitement and freedom we had as young people doing something different to what others were doing. We were able to go out to different places like the Rose Theatre and to Central London for a number of things. We met people from all walks of life who we may not have met without the youth theatre.
My memories from the cafe…I have so many! I loved the Creative Cafe and it gave me a real purpose. I think about the children everyday. I wish it were still going. I loved the community spirit and closeness we were able to bring and I enjoyed seeing how the children had fun when coming and how their lives were changing and the feel of the estate during the cafe.
I am now at University studying physical education and youth sports with the hopes of eventually becoming a head teacher so that I can continue to have a positive influence and effect on children and young people.
