“I want to share my passion for the arts and for the activities… in the theatre company: you can do it! I want people to learn music, singing, dancing, acting, any art form that can give you joy and happiness – it’s a therapy… and it can become one’s profession.”
“Whenever I walk into a room full of Cardboard Citizens, I cannot help but be struck by the wealth of talent, skills, life experience in the space, so many stories and so many ways of expressing them…
I’m interested in harvesting and utilising the mass of skills and talents and desires that already exist within the membership… I’d like to … utilise this to help each other achieve our individual artistic goals and ambitions.”
“I would love to see more people join Cardboard Citizens .. see more people like me, shy people, coming out of their shells… I would love to see people given a chance to share their ideas… there are people with amazing ideas but sometimes they are afraid to bring these ideas to life because of fear… I would love to be an inspiration for people who are shy…”
“One of my main objectives is to promote growth within the company for the Members and the company as a whole… and in doing so we can achieve a lot, we can make it a more open experience and a more better experience for all of us.”
