Serina Lopez

Age: 26
Borough: Hackney
Employer: Sadler’s Wells Visitor Services
Job title: Visitor Experiences Intern

Serina previously enrolled on the Creative Opportunity Programme which added to her interesting and varied background in the creative arts. Her interests span across illustration, fashion, and community arts projects. Encouraged to pursue a ‘professional’ career path, alongside the lack of BAME women in the arts, Serina felt a career in the creative sector was not a viable option. The Creative Opportunity Programme opened her eyes to the range of career paths in the sector. She has been placed in the Visitor Services department at Sadler’s Wells Theatre.

For Serina, STEP has come at just the right time.  She’s had an uneven route into the industry since graduating, as issues around health and confidence have restricted her potential to secure paid work. STEP has been just the right boost to help her move into employment and find a route into the creative industries.
