Acting classes have helped me when meeting new people. I feel a lot more comfortable and confident when starting a new job or in a new social environment. I feel a lot more confident expressing my self and feel that I understand my emotions better.

Before YAFTA I was quite shy, it has given me so much confidence and the skills we learn in class has impacted by day to day life so I am more confident in everyday situations. I always leave the class on a high. It has enabled me to communicate better in the outside world too. I always leave classes with a huge smile!
