Daisy Hughes spoke to pupils about her career journey

We welcomed Daisy Hughes to speak to pupils about her journey to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art straight from school and her performances in numerous plays, TV and film. She then stopped acting in order to fully commit to six years of training to become a stunt woman. Also, she is an athlete, fitness instructor, personal trainer and yoga teacher and founded the charity ‘Girls Who Pull’.

Daisy had a busy afternoon of talks to Year 13 pupils, all the girls from Year 12, and Drama pupils.

Her talk to Year 13s illustrated that, as they come closer to leaving school education and discovering their post school paths, they will take changes of direction. They should not be fearful of failure, and instead embrace new things, do something positive and look after their wellbeing, both mentally and physically.

The girls enjoyed an inclusive talk and Q&A session with Daisy on Inner and Outer Strengthening.

Daisy’s finale was an insightful talk with pupils interested in Drama on applying to Drama School, getting an agent and nailing the interview!
