Sit back, relax, and read.
Work experience! What do you think about when you hear that? Working in Tesco or McDonalds. Standing there for hours saying “would you like fries with that” well not us! We’re going to be working with STEP. We won’t be doing someone’s dirty work; we won’t be someone’s slave. We will be getting right in to work actually doing something that makes a difference and WILL benefit our lives in the future.
Yeah, I know you’re probably thinking... “Ah great, another person speaking about boring work experience!” The first day of work experience with STEP Company was amazing. We travelled to Southwark College, to help out with costume designing with a designer called Maggie. It was incredible; the designs of the costumes were so vibrant and interesting. It was like re living our childhood in one room, seeing costumes from ‘Cat In The Hat’, ‘Shrek’, ‘Bugsy Malone’, ‘Greece’. Just to know, that we have the opportunity to work with someone like Maggie, was wonderful. She was such an inspiration, seeing her designs in this one big room. Each row of clothes, for different generations and times. From, Romans, Tudors, Ancients, Victorians, Comics, Pantomime, Greeks! It was an amazing experience, to see everything backstage, Wigs, Hats, Props and more. We loved every bit of it. And we’d love to thank STEP for giving us an opportunity to work with someone as amazing like Maggie yesterday!
