Where to start, I was lucky enough to find this school when I was young and newly fueled with the love of Acting. I first met Sherril Parsons (the founder of this sensational, talanted, inspirational school) in the middle of a dress rehearsal of Scrooge. I was thrown in with a day of rehearsal and she trusted me to play the part, this was when I knew I was part of a beautiful, theatrical, creative family! Sherril believed in me like she does every single one of her students and she pushed me to limits I never knew I could, always. With Sherril’s guidence, I won Student of the year award 2008, was awarded Distinction in LAMDA Grade 8, and I graduated Rose Bruford School of Speech and Drama with a 1st Class Honours in Aciting.
Without YULA I honestly wouldn’t have achieved so much in my professional acting life. They really are such a beautiful drama family, and this safe place is where you will, honestly meet friends for life. I am always so, so greatful for the time and care that was shown to me when I was a young student filled with fire and pure passion. Future students will be honoured to have opportunities like had and YULA truly is where it begins!
