“I have been challenged constantly through the transition of having to become a “grown up” and while I was here all by myself, until today I still call “New Image College” my Home. The reasons being, whether I wanted and could speak to my family or not about whatever challenge I was facing in my craft or life in general, I could also choose to speak to anyone from the New Image.

 

May it be our teachers, to our head of departments or even the President of New Image College herself. The environment of our school is beyond refreshing, you are not just another number and the teachers always make sure that you get something out of the lessons.

 

If you ever feel that something is in the way of your learning experience, you can make it be heard and they’ll try their best to accommodate it. I am positive that I know that if I need guidance for auditions or just questions about the craft, I can always walk through one door, to this safe place.

 

“What you GIVE is what you GET” Starting from your attitude, behaviour and professionalism.”
