Young Producers illustration of Sophie

My love of period dramas, historical films and musicals created a strong interest in the ways in which people engage with the past and the types of narratives that are being told.

This is why I wanted to get involved with the Shout Out Loud project by becoming a Young Producer. It has enabled me to play an active role in giving younger people a voice in the stories of our national history as well as exploring those histories that have so far been untold.

I have just graduated from the University of Bristol after studying History there for 3 years, and will be going on to study a ‘Museum and Gallery Studies’ master’s degree at the University of St Andrews in September.
