July 2012

Where did you Study?

De Montfort University.

What did you Study?

BA Hons in Drama Studies.

What year did you Graduate?


So we can feel more intimate, three words to describe your physical appearance.

Tall, Stubborn & Blonde.

What did you do when you left Uni? Be brutally honest! If you cried into a bowl of cereal every morning & treated your local pub like your favourite Uni nightclub, say so.

Jumped into the world of Motor Insurance and lettings to pay for my drinking habit/London fund.

Attempted anything and everything dramatic and arty (stage plays, volunteering as a runner/bitch on a film, made a weekly ‘scene’ in the local nightclub).

What are you doing now and how long do you see yourself doing it for? Are you in your dream job? If not yet, what is this?

Currently jobless after an unfortunate circumstance (the company was a fraud, which in a way would’ve been a credit to my acting abilities, morals got in the way however.)

But alas, London still beckons (early September).

Do you think Uni has helped you to be where you are now?
Yes I have matured and realised two big things: Someone else’s opinion, no matter how well educated they are, is still only an opinion and not a truth AND sometimes you have to be selfish.

Any advice for graduates who aren’t yet in their dream jobs or still battling against this rubbish economy for just an interview?

I believe you have to go through this slump to really discover what you want in life. When you’re not handed everything on a plate, you really fight for whatever it is you want.

Finally, if you would be so kind, tell us briefly about your day ahead – just in case we might want to change our career path.

Today, the recent jobless graduate, has been left with the task of entertaining my 4 year old nephew Jakey, my 2 year old niece Phoebe and 2 month new born Freddie. Bet they never teach you THIS at Drama School!

That’s it. Alex, you have been wonderful.
