Reflection on your time at Nagle.
I started at Nagle as a Year 7 in 2013 and graduated in 2018. While I was there, I was always a part of anything to do with the arts including Rags to Riches, Shakeyfest and musicals. Due to my commitment, I very gratefully received the Sister Pascal Award for Cultural Contribution to the Arts in both Year 11 and 12.
What did you do after finishing Year 12?
After my time at school, I successfully auditioned for the prestigious Village Nation Performing Arts in Sydney. At this time, I had to choose between going to university or pursuing my dreams. I didn’t want to live with the regret of not trying this career path, so I packed up and moved interstate. I trained fulltime in all dance genres, along with singing and acting for two years. I learnt so much and had many incredible experiences during my time training.
What are you up to now?
I am currently living in India, dancing in Bollywood films and music videos. The many movies I have been in will be released over the next 18 months, with a couple of music videos being released already. If you’d like to experience a little Bollywood, look up these videos on YouTube - Dolce Gabbana and Rangisari. The latter is from the movie JugJugg Jeeyo and you could add yourself to the millions of others who have viewed it. You may just spot a girl from Geraldton! I am here for 5 months before returning back to Sydney to keep auditioning and continue my journey in the performing arts world.
What advice do you have for our students?
The one thing I have learnt since leaving high school is that there is so much time to achieve your goals. I still want to attend university one day but why not travel the world and follow my dreams first. Never worry about what others are doing around you, or their opinions on what you want to do with your life. As long as you’re happy and not living with regret, that is all that matters.
