I am astounded with joy to be awarded a BAFTA scholarship

I am conscious that with this help a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, which will allow me to focus solely on completing my training to the best of my ability. It has been a long journey for me and I have great aspiration but to be given such an opportunity solidifies my achievements thus far and reaffirms that I am heading in the right direction. Thank you BAFTA!”
