I was part of JADA Emerging Artists scheme 2015/16. Being under Josephine's guidance, I have gained a place at East 15 Acting school on their BA. Josephine shows inspiring devotion to her craft and students, opening up many industry links, paid work and continuos industry tutelage from her own peers for us. I see her influence in my performance constantly especially with my movement and my grounding on stage. I credit a great deal of my success to Josephine and JADA.

I studied Singing and audition coaching at JADA and my time here was very beneficial. Without the training and push of confidence from the teachers i wouldn't have had enough courage to be where I am now at the Urdang Academy or even audition to begin with. I auditioned at 6 colleges and earned a place at them all, each audition required a song for me to sing, which I would have hugely struggled with if I didn't have the time spent on me through this period. loved every minute at Jada they are a fun and supportive team.

I am grateful to JADA for allowing me to discover my passion for acting, which was only able to flourish in the safe and encouraging environment that Josephine has created at the school. Due to her guidance and encouragement, alongside the years of training and opportunities JADA has offered me, I was given the push that I needed to apply to acting school, gaining me a place at East 15 this year. I am overwhelmed and can not express in words the satisfaction that I gain everyday from pursuing acting as a career, and without JADA and the incredible support from staff and students, I know I wouldn’t be in the position I am today - working with all my passion to achieve my dream. JADA, without a doubt, has been an intrinsic part of my acting journey, which will stay with me for the rest of my life.
