Arts Award

 

I have already completed a Bronze Arts Award and for the last two years I have been working on my Silver Arts Award. Arts Award has allowed me to work one on one with a mentor – Alison Raimes at the Whistle Art Stop in Haltwhistle – and has helped me to achieve something that I would have found difficult at school or college. When I was two years old, I was in a car crash and it gave me brain damage resulting in some physical and mental difficulties. But I have fought hard to overcome these and through Arts Award I have now found a career that I know I can do and enjoy.
