My name is Yazmin Tosun, I am a 13 year old girl from Bournemouth, Dorset. My personality is outgoing, caring, fun loving and spirited, I have 3 other siblings in my family and I am the eldest child. I started out at the age of 6 years with The Swish of the Curtain school, Bournemouth attending Musical Theatre lessons incorporating dance, acting and singing. Through this time particularly when I was younger I achieved a lot, I gained 4 exams in the Musical Thestre Lamda exams through the University of West London, I achieved Grade 2 at Distinction level, Grade 3 at Distinction level, and Grade 4 and 5 at Merit level. I had to sing the songs chosen, do monalogues, learn the theory side of the songs etc in front of an unknown examiner it was nerving but also a real achievement to have completed it to the best of your ability and to have an exam. Also I was involved with the yearly summer showcases where I worked in a team and also I performed some solos which I really enjoyed and felt a real sense of achievement performing in front of a large audience. I also for 4 years was involved in being part of the shows through Swish at the Bournemouth Pavillion, Oliver, The Wizard of Oz, Bugsy Malone and Annie. Through Swish’s film agency Sally King I became involved in being a background artist in two films Entebbe filmed at Ealing studios and The kid who would be King, both were brilliant experiences to get an real insight being involved in a film, following directors orders, the set, wardrobe, hair and make up, the scenes and time that is devoted to making films. Through having this experience I knew then that I didn’t want to do Musical Theatre but I wanted to do films, tv, commercials etc.
