Since April 2012 when I fist appeared on BGT, it has been a journey and experience I will forever treasure. It gave me the platform to help people to be more confident, and happier in themselves so that they can be the best version of themselves.
I have since been interviewed by various TV, Radio, and Magazines. I have made new friends and met so many people from diverse background. I have been nominated for various awards and been able to inspire children and adults through the various speaking engagements and confidence building and happiness sessions I deliver. I am very active in my local community of Gravesend where I take part in a lot of the local activities and I find it amazing that a lot of people still remember my audition. I still keep in touch of one of my fellow contestant “ The Saw lady” Caroline and follow some of the others.
Some amazing things that happened to me since BGT 2012
