Update from grantee Zinzile Tshuma


We received a wonderful letter from grantee Zinzile Tshuma last week. She said:

“Just a note to bring you up to date with my third year at Bird College… which I could not have done without your kind support. It has been a rollercoaster of hard work, and I hope I have passed all of my assessments, both written and practical over the last three years and will receive my diploma is July! Phew!

Even more exciting; I have been seen by a choreographer/producer at college in the agents’ week and have been offered a 15 month contract in a West End show. I start rehearsals in a weeks time! I’m not allowed to say which show yet as casting is always announced by the company first, but it really is a dream come true.

Thank you so much for your help, faith an confidence. I could not have done it without you, Bird College, Debbie and Essex dance theatre, my family and my church.

Thank you and god bless you.”

Massive congratulations Zinzile! You’ll be BRILLIANT!
