Naahid Jamie’s Story
Athlone High School – 15 years old
My love for the performing arts started 3years ago, though I believe I was always meant to be on stage or amongst the stars.
I’m known amongst my family and peers to be a ball of life who brightens up any space and am no short of tenacity which means I go for what I want & dedicated to any task I set my mind to.
I took part in the festival over 3 years, from 2018 to 2020, performed roles such as Duke in “As You Like It”, Cleopatra in “Antony and Cleopatra” and directed “The Scottish Play” as well as played Banquo.
I have since experienced a level of growth, independency, maturity, wisdom, leadership & confidence that I would not trade for anything. The SSFSA has given me the insight to pursue the field of Theatre & Film as a degree, the love for performing arts and the stage has given new meaning to my life, as it helps me deal with many low moments on a daily bases.
