Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a female artist, living in Sutton with experience as an actress, feature artiste, dancer, model and more!

How were you involved in Sutton STEAMs Ahead?

I was a dancer and background cast for the film We Dance for Life. I got involved because I love acting, dancing and also help the community by making aware of the cancer cells reproducing in the body and the treatment and circumstances of the people experiencing cancer.

Were there any highlights and/or take-aways from being part of Sutton STEAMs Ahead?

I didn’t know the steps and didn’t have much knowledge about cancer. I learned about cancer, worked with people suffering with it and felt I grew spiritually and intellectually. I also have been using the reference and the video film for my new acting agency.

What does STEAM mean to you?

Art is an important part of human life. Art and science work better because it’s the whole human being and their environment. Creativity is my scene and the root of my work and my income. Creativity is all for me!

What’s up next for you?

Dance, and learning more about cancer research.
