"My Paston College journey was character building"

19th May 2020 – Tags: Performing Arts, Student Stories

Tilda Fassih shares how her Paston College journey has seen her follow her acting ambitions.

A great reputation and a new adventure

I chose to study at Paston College as I knew of the drama and theatre studies course and had heard great things. I was ready for a new adventure and studied A Level Drama and Theatre Studies, English Literature and History

Preparing for the future 

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at college and I would encourage anyone to study at Paston College. It allowed me to meet so many likeminded people and I had the opportunity to watch many live performances, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

The most notable difference from high school for me was that my tutors were only teaching that one subject so had a lot more time for their students, which I loved. 

Character building

My time at college prepared me for drama school auditions with mock auditions and help with interview preparation. There was also a lot of support for personal statement planning as well. 

If I could sum up my Paston College journey it would be - ‘character building’ 

Next steps 

I am about to start a preliminary acting course at Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

I am hoping to continue working in the industry and to encourage and promote the importance of the arts in education and society.
