Thanks to Jigsaw I’ve been auditioning and acting professionally since I was 13. Now I am prepared and confident enough to take on TV, stage or film because of the years they spent developing not just a broad base of skills but also an attitude and maturity that makes you valuable to work with.

How did Jigsaw help you?

Jigsaw gave me the support and encouragement to apply myself and follow my dream to audition for drama school. Being a part of the youth theatre was especially valuable because I was able to learn about staging and performing an entire play. I worked with all different types of actors of varying ages and was able to learn from them also. It was amazing for my confidence and social skills as I made friends for life! I will always have a deep love for Jigsaw and everything they do to nurture talent and promote confidence and passion in children of all ages.
