Shamime at the Hollywood Bowl
At the age of 18 I was given the opportunity to perform with Jason Mraz and his band at the Hollywood Bowl in front of more than 15,000 people. It may be crazy to think that on the day of my last A-level History exam I was flown out to L.A. but it’s true and it goes without saying that my time at St Charles gave me the confidence to go ahead with this little adventure.
St Charles has always cared about extra-curricular activities, whether it be Age UK, basketball, or in my case music; my teachers always supported me and gave me the space to develop my musical abilities. My tutor offered advice and allowed me to flourish both academically and artistically as she supported me throughout my time in college and I am so thankful, as her support gave me the determination to carry on with my hobby even when my academic study was demanding.
St Charles will always have a special place in my heart because it was the beginning of not only my academic journey but it also opened the doors to a wealth of opportunities I can’t wait to experience.
