She said that she had always written fiction, plays and full screenplays for others and for her own plays. She managed to sell a few scripts but felt she was never fully compensated or recognised for her work.
The need to keep a full-time job meant she never felt able or confident enough to focus solely on a career in writing or film.
Now that has changed. She said,
"I chose UEL, largely due to the New Beginnings course, which is an access course that allows people like me who do not have the formal qualifications, entry to university. I also did some research around the film course and had come across positive reviews, which helped me with my decision. "
Looking forward, she said,
"I am excited to work with professional writers, filmmakers and tutors who I hope will be instrumental in assisting me to hone my craft. I welcome the feedback that is provided as they have the knowledge and experience that I would like to benefit from."
