Olivia described her time at Sunderland College as friendly, supportive and interesting.
She recently earned a gold medal in her grade 8 acting exam from the Northern Star Theatre where she also works to develop young performers.
Oliva said: “I’ve loved my time at Sunderland College and the opportunities available to me through studying here. As part of my course, I’ve been part of the production of Evita at the Theatre Royal, so my skills were quickly put into practice.
“Meeting everyone on the course and making new friends has been a highlight and I couldn’t have asked for more from the teaching staff.”
Olivia is now progressing to the University of Sunderland to study Performing Arts
