Meet our alumni
Was there a defining moment when you decided to follow a music career? I thought, yes, I do want to give singing a go. So I went to Woolworths and bought a notebook and I decided on the things I thought I should do before applying to music college.
I remember writing down that I should learn music theory, the piano and improve my languages. Who has been your biggest influence? My teacher in Huddersfield, Patricia Hamilton, was amazing; she really made sure I went to college with a sound technique.
I worked at the Virgin Megastore in Sheffield and my supervisor, Richard Schofield, taught me so much about people having unreasonable demands and expectations. I remember many a night being given a piggyback home from the Octagon! If you were sent to a desert island, what three things would you take? A piano, the complete works of Bach and maybe some soap. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Who would be your dream dinner party guest? I would really like to meet the composer Hugo Wolf. What book are you reading at the moment? A book on organic gardening.
Lake Maggiore in Italy. Which comedians make you laugh? What was the first CD you bought? We call it a movement because we hope it to be a cross-cutting theme which underpins any activity that the CAI undertakes in the future. We feel that in order to obtain long-term impact, it is imperative that sustained efforts are made on this front.
Why is this an important topic to you personally? Personally, gender equality is closer to my heart because I believe a fairer world is possible. However, for me, gender equality is not a destination but a process, a constant journey, a conscious choice.
It takes tremendous effort and an acknowledgement of responsibility for those in privileged positions to fight back against learned behaviors and create a more gender-equal environment. With this understanding, I believe that it is important that high-achievers, such as Chevening Alumni, confront the issues of power, gender relations, and ensuing inequalities.
