My name is Grace, I am 20 and I live in Glasgow studying acting. Since my early childhood I have attended acting and dance classes, gigs, shows and festivals. I come from a wee town in the north of Scotland called Forres - my parents moved there so my sister and I could attend the Moray Steiner School, now the Drumduan School.
After finishing school in 2015 I took two years out to work, travel, volunteer, act and play. I made theatre as part of the National Theatre of Scotland Exchange Festival 2016. I became actively involved in programming activities for the Moray Youth Arts Hub, and from there progressed into the National Youth Arts Advisory Group. I was also a member of the inaugural Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble 2017.
