Biography

A talented actress, Roz is a determined individual who takes on life's challenges and remains positive and motivated.  Whilst living in a socially deprived area of Musselburgh, Edinburgh, she took on two part-time jobs to support her family and her education. 

Roz studied an HND in Acting and Performance at Edinburgh's Telford College.  She proved herself to be adept in comedic acting as well as more serious roles.  She played the antagonist in 'Split//Second'; a forum theatre production with Creative Electric, which explored the impacts of knife crime on young people and toured secondary schools around Edinburgh.

Roz also took on the role of Chairperson of the Creative Electric Youth Board.  This involved a high level of responsibility with duties such as managing the youth company, leading meetings and fundraising for the organisation. 

After completing her HND and gaining an A grade, Roz secured a place at the highly competitive Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London.  Her drive and determination is matched by her talent and interpersonal skills, and as such she demonstrates excellent potential for her future career.

How the Award Helped 

Roz received an award to support her on her three-year degree course at Italia Conti.

Receiving the Dewar Award has had a significant impact on my life. Without your support I would not have been able to accept my place at one of the UK's top Drama Schools.  I can't put into words how grateful I am. Thank you!
