‘I’ve found the strength to live life to the full’ read Stephanie’s story

When Stephanie moved into King George’s House, one of our Stockwell services for young people, staff encouraged her interests and supported her to find opportunities.

In the last year Stephanie successfully auditioned to be part of a parallel production of the Young Vic’s ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’. The main production starred Gillian Anderson and Stephanie was able to meet the main cast and pick up acting tips.

Being part of the production was a great opportunity. ‘I knew acting was something I love to do, but when I was accepted and took part in a production and everyone was pleased with my performance, it made me feel confident.

Now I know I can make my dream to one day own a theatre and lead a theatre company, a reality.’ Stephanie’s experiences at Evolve have also had an impact on her in other ways: ‘Staff have helped me so much, and I’ve learned how to live and think independently. I really didn’t know how to do that when I first came to King George’s House. I am better in so many ways, including how confident and determined I am, how hard I work, and how I socialise with people.’
