Rizwana Ali

  • Royal Exchange’s Young Company and John Thaw Trainee scheme 2017
  • Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts

Rizwana joined the college as an aspiring actor in 2014 and quickly became one of the most consistent performers in both the creative and academic areas of her course.

After leaving the college she quickly found employment with the Royal Exchange Theatre, working in youth programmes where she visits other college’s for workshops – including Hopwood Hall.

Rizwana credits her course for not just preparing her for working life, but for helping her to develop on a personal level too.

“Hopwood Hall's Performing Arts department helped me gain confidence and grow in character.
“My course lead me to so many great opportunities and I now work with some amazing people within the performing industry. I'd like to say a huge thank you to my lecturers Daniella Kelsall and Helen Spurr for supporting me.”
