Drama school: the home stretch

I’ve got a few short months left and then it’s HASTA LA VISTA to life as a drama student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. 3 years have passed by in a flash!

Around mid-February my class and I have showcase for industry professionals, two in Glasgow and the other in London (London being the hub of the UK acting industry).

20180930_135457(0).jpgThis is really an opportunity to present ourselves to the acting world, to the people who can give us all those juicy jobs. We each perform two scenes and then there’s the group song – probably something pop-ish, upbeat and super catchy.

Reading my old blog posts

I’ve been reading some of the entries from my beginner days on WordPress way back in early 2015. I created my blog to talk about my goals and share my journey with absolutely anyone who’d care to listen!

In my earlier posts I was mostly focussing on getting into drama school and preparing for a solid career as an actor. Four years later, so much has happened in my life and so much has changed: some downs, but many, many, many more ups. Thankfully.

I’m so proud to say that my fighting spirit hasn’t left me. I’m still advancing in my acting career and my self-belief has never been stronger. Continue reading

Becoming an effective life coach

Last weekend I had a practical training day with The Coaching Academy as part of my diploma. As always, it was a good chance to mingle with other students and polish up my skills.

However, one thing I’m focussing on now is getting coached.

Getting coached means that I can learn about other ways of coaching, techniques that I wouldn’t necessarily learn as part of my diploma. Each new coach offers his/her own method which I can decide to implement with my own clients. And of course, I can let go of things that don’t resonate with me.

Finding the right path

I feel like I’ve been steaming ahead on this new path of personal development and entrepreneurship which is such a blessing. At this stage I have no doubt that I’m on the right path and let me tell you why.

1. Emotions:

I’m super, super, super happy. I get excited just thinking about some of the upcoming projects and events. For example, I just came back from a training day with the Coach Academy where I met loads of aspiring coaches, different ages, backgrounds and from different walks of life. Now that is cool. I left feeling grateful, optimistic and certain that I will get qualified real soon!

My Mastermind Group

I created a Mastermind Group recently which includes myself and two of my good friends who are also actors. The purpose of the group is for us to share tips and advice on the acting industry as well as stuff on motivation, money and personal development.

Our Mastermind Group has a WhatsApp conversation where we talk ideas, knowledge and share what we learn daily. We like to post motivational videos from YouTube, discuss new movies and plays, recommend articles and blog posts, and networking opportunities and events.
