‘I firmly believe that talent without education is not worth a lot. Whatever I’m doing now, 95% of it I learned at the Royal Welsh College. I’d never really studied music before arriving here at RWCMD. I was singing in choirs but I hadn’t ever had any formal training and so I was very curious and open to learn from everyone I could. I learned everything here, from the language lessons, movement, drama classes, singing lessons... and within two years, I had all the tools I needed to be ready for the industry.

When I left the College, I went to work for English National Opera and I'm currently preparing for my next roles at Covent Garden and the Royal Opera House.’
