“I was born and raised in Hackney and have just recently finished studying History and American Studies at the University of Nottingham. The arts and heritage sector has always been something I’ve wanted to explore but a lack of proper experience meant a lot of unsuccessful applications. STEP has provided a way into the industry that will provide me with a really varied experience. I’ll be starting off as a curatorial intern on the exciting V&A East project before moving to Sadler’s Wells to work as a programming intern. Through STEP I hope to build my professional network and gain skills and knowledge that I can use wherever I end up.”
