Sylvia Young first met Amy when she auditioned for a scholarship to attend the Sylvia Young Theatre School. Principal Sylvia Young shares in this interview the lovely piece that Amy wrote with her application form.
Here are the exact words Amy wrote in the letter above…
“I want to go somewhere where I am stretched right to my limits and perhaps even beyond. To sing in lessons without being told to shut up (provided they are singing lessons.) But mostly, I have this dream to be very famous to work on stage. It’s a life long ambition. I want people to hear my voice and just… forget their troubles for five minutes. I want to be remembered for being an actress, a singer, for sell-out concerts and sell-out West-End and Broadway shows and for being just me.”
After reading Amy’s words, Sylvia Young thought it was an ambitious statement for a thirteen year old… but she knew what she wanted… and she did get it.
