PB was referred to Breeze Arts Foundation in October 2010 by her connexions worker. PB was referred due to been NEET and having a passion for music and the arts but having very little confidence and social skills.
Since been on Breeze Arts and having one to one support PB has developed in confidence, developed her social skills and made a new network of friends. PB has gained her Bronze Arts Award qualification and is currently working towards her silver award.
PB has completed two terms and is now on her third. PB has performed in front of a live audience, delivered workshops to Primary school children and has written, sang and recorded her own song and group song. All of this has helped PB develop and help her emotional wellbeing.
In September PB is hoping to start at Leeds College of Music. By doing Breeze Arts she has the confidence, skills and qualifications which she did not have when she first started to be able to go to college and gain herself a place. PB says Breeze Arts has helped her in so many ways and has improved her life.
Full time/higher education in performing arts or employment.
