While being at the school she worked with David McAllister to create ‘Swan Lake Variations’ a piece to be performed on regional tour, she also enjoyed the process of working with Lucas Jervies in making the new school production of ‘Butterfly’. In her spare time she loves hanging out with her friends and baking and cooking.
