I am over the moon to have been chosen for the BAFTA Scholarship programme
Fatuma said: “I am over the moon to have been chosen for the BAFTA Scholarship programme, supported by Warner Brothers! This is a huge achievement for me, as the more I learn about hair and make-up, the more passionate I grow about developing my career within the industry. I think it’s really important that make-up studies are being funded and I’m particularly looking forward to the industry mentoring offered as part of the scholarship programme; one day I hope I will be able to give back and become a mentor myself. Thanks again to BAFTA and Warner Brothers for this invaluable opportunity - I will cherish every moment!”
Fatuma is receiving a Prince William Scholarship in Film, Games and Television, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros.
