I studied Events and Music Management at BCE. I really benefited from studying at BCE; my most memorable moment was my first showcase. We had Chipmunk, Wretch 32, Ghetts, Bashy, plus surprise guests and I remember the energy of the crowd going bonkers as we kept hitting them with surprises. That is what solidified my love of entertaining and creating immersive experiences for people. What I really loved about BCE is that they allowed me to be an individual. They allowed us to be creative and to flourish and I feel like the teachers and mentors knew how to spot that greatness in people.

I was also given tangible pathways into the entertainment industries working with Urban Development and Eastside Records. Most importantly I was given a new lease of life and I’m sure many other young people feel the same way. The work I do now is about empowering young people, so I came back in to work with the Media class a few years ago. Some of the students helped me on set of my short film ‘AMANI’, working behind the scenes and even featuring in it.

If it wasn’t for BCE there’s no way I would have becomemthe person I am today. Thanks for helping me find myself!
