A FELPHAM performing arts student has the chance to become an actor in New York.
Jordan Ashmore has been offered a place next September at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts’ school for film and television.
She said: “It’s amazing to be offered a place. They don’t take many international students.
“There were a lot of people at the auditions in London in August. I had to perform two different monologues and have an interview.”
Former Felpham Community College student Jordan, 18, is studying for a Btec at Northbrook College. She will follow this by crossing the Atlantic next summer if she can raise some £20,000 for her first of two years in New York.
This is after she was awarded a £12,000 scholarship. She is working in Tesco at weekends and has asked businesses to help her as well as planning a sponsored skydive next March.
Her stepfather and brother will be holding a sponsored golf day for her next June.
Jordan said the chance to study at the conservatory was one not to be missed. “It’s well-known in America and one of the best.
“It’s a great opportunity to get into an acting career.”
Jordan is playing one of the main parts of Northbrook’s play this month. She said: “I like being on stage and becoming different people.”
