"Having run Stagecoach Theatre Arts for the past 10 years and with all my experience growing up as a child, this has lead me down the path to following my dreams and purpose in life and I want other children to do the same. I believe this is important for our development and growth into adulthood to keep us growing and developing our character which will enable us as adults to cope better with life's challenges''.
