Interests and Volunteering

Since I arrived at London, in 2015, I have been heavily involved in acting, being part of 9 plays and 2 short-films, both university-associated and independent productions. I have also participated in national and international theatre festivals. In 2016/17, I was part of the volunteering project "Out of Silence", to advocate for women's rights.
