I am currently in year 11 at school and I have chosen to do Performing Arts at GCSE level. I really like taking part in Performing Arts because I believe it helps your creativity and confidence grow.
My favourite performance that I have been involved in so far is when I played the part of a scientist and I had my own time machine. From doing this performance I have learnt that mistakes can sometimes lead you to being successful. This is because during the performance I crashed when trying to enter the time machine. In fact I crashed more than once! However, I feel that I managed to remain confident and continued to act where I adapted to my mistake. As a result, I found that surprisingly the audience really liked this part so I am pleased for my mistake.
Additionally, my target grade for GCSE Performing Arts is a D and I hope to fulfill this before I transition to college. Adding to this I hope to excel my skills of acting in college. I especially look forward to going to college because I will make lots of new friends.
Consequently, I find that when writing about a performance that I have acted in I can find this task hard. I think this is because I feel that I can struggle when self-evaluating. However, I will continue to work hard to improve this.
When the time came for my very first audition I was ecstatic because the audition was held in Newcastle for CBBC’S The Dumping Ground! I was ecstatic because The Dumping Ground is one of my favourite TV shows. The role that I had to play for the audition was the character role of a young girl who was also disabled and was reliant on a wheelchair to get around. She was even called Chloe too. Just like me! I think that the experience of the audition was incredible because it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. One day I would absolutely love to be on the television.
I have recently joined The Pauline Quirke Academy on a Saturday, 9:45am-1:00pm and I am in Red group which means that I am mixing with other people of my age group.
