What motivated you to join the Oxford School of Drama Board of Trustees? 

I believe we are in an exciting and seminal period of change in our society, our culture and our collective ways of thinking. I was motivated to join the Board of Trustees to be an active part of this movement for positive change. 

Coming from a fully working-class background with absolutely no knowledge of, or ties to, the industry, I know I would not have the career I do today without The Oxford School of Drama. It is deeply important to me that the school’s unique values, levels of care and commitment to being fully and authentically inclusive are upheld.

What would you like to contribute or achieve as part of your role? 

I would like to be a strong voice on the board, particularly surrounding inclusivity, diversity and support for students from low socioeconomic backgrounds. I will work to ensure the school’s values and vision are ethically current and ambitious for the future.

I believe OSD should be a place where artists and storytellers are empowered and encouraged to reach their full potential.
