My name is Kiara Sullivan and I am a recent graduate from the BA Applied Drama course at UWTSD. Within my final year of studies, I specialised in creating new ways to allow disadvantaged young people to use their voices to the create changes they wanted. As a woman who was brought up in a deprived valley, it was youth theatre and community participation that helped mould me into the woman I am today. I am very passionate about offering the same experiences that I had as a young person to the new generation of young people. I want young people everywhere to know that they matter and that they can do great things when they use their voices.
