'When I started my training at London College of Music I had only dreams and aspirations. Three years later and I can thankfully say those dreams have become a reality after landing my first role as Simba understudy in the UK tour of Disney's The Lion King and now in Motown the Musical. Achieving this would have been futile were it not for the exemplary training offered on the BA Musical Theatre course. But what has to be the most significant aspect of my experience is the support I received from all the course tutors. They care deeply about each and every student and a special thanks goes to the Field Leader David Henson who never stopped believing in me, even when I did. I am forever grateful to London College of Music for giving me a chance and who knows, maybe this time I'll win!'
