Student Acts up for University
North Lindsey College student has been accepted into one of the best performing arts schools in the UK.
Megan Bogg (20) went through the interview process for her first choice university, LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts), and was recently advised she has been offered a place.
Megan came to North Lindsey College after getting her A Levels. She was due to begin a nursing course but felt it was not for her and needed a more creative outlet, with a view to inspiring and educating others through performance.
“Drama was the only subject at school that I could do as I wanted and express myself,” says Megan. “The teachers I have had from school to College have all been influential throughout my life from.”
“Megan is an enthusiastic, intelligent and well driven young lady who truly wants to inspire people, perform and educate communities within England and abroad using theatre as her motive yet remaining true to cultural and political issues,” says
Leena Pawlyszyn, Programme Tutor of Performing Arts, Design, Performing Arts & Music.
“Megan is exceptionally talented and I have no doubt that she will become extremely successful within her chosen pathway! I wish her all the luck in the world for the future and the journey she is about to embark on. LIPA has gained a true star!”
Megan’s dream is to develop an established theatre group and to inspire others, she said, “When I first came to North Lindsey College I didn’t know what to expect but soon realised that you’re treated like adults and the staff cannot do enough for you. It is a fantastic College and if you want a hands on learning experience you need to come here, you’re always treated like professionals. I’m so excited for university; it’s where I always wanted to go – it’s becoming real now and LIPA is very prestigious.”
Megan has always been fascinated Indian culture, it’s a place she always wanted to visit, and volunteer in. Until she got a place at university she was planning on a volunteering trip in October, however due to her university success this is now not happening but Megan didn't want to completely give up on an opportunity to help. Megan has been working on creating a program specifically designed to bring the community together, whilst raising money for those less fortunate. Megan has set up her own theatre group called ‘Collage Theatre’ and through these sessions, she is teaching local about Indian culture, faith, hardship and life. She has also set up a go fund me page where more information about the project can be found at https://www.gofundme.com/collagetheatredalitcommunity
