Recently, I have graduated from university with a 2.1 Bachelor of Arts in Drama. During my degree, I heard people say that stereotypical saying of "drama is a useless degree, why not do a proper degree?" I have studied drama for the following reasons, to build my self-confidence and self-esteem, teamwork and communication skills. These skills are all vital to what employers look for in job applications, not only this, but it also allowed me to develop my creative skills in performance and industry.
Studying drama was certainly not a "doss subject" either! It took me 3 years of hard work, determination and a lot of help and support from my friends, family and also had to find strength from inside me to keep going.....and I did get there! Since graduating, I am now volunteering in my local theatre and developing my skills in technical theatre (which is the area I am wanting to start a career in!)
Thank you for reading my blog post!
