NC Acting and Performance student Jenny Duncan has been named this year’s Karen Gillan Award winner at #ECPrizeGiving.
We caught up with eighteen-year-old Jenny about her Edinburgh College experience so far.
What made you choose Edinburgh College for your studies?
I chose Edinburgh College to study as I knew PASS was a great place to learn, such an amazing welcoming environment.
How do you feel about being recognised at Prize Giving?
It’s extremely flattering to receive this award I definitely didn’t see it coming
What has been the best thing so far about studying at Edinburgh College? Any highlights?
Cliché, but one of the best things is meeting some amazing people, also learning so many new tools and techniques to improve my performance.
Have you faced any challenges, either before starting or during your studies? How did you overcome them?
If you could give one piece of advice to a student starting at the college now, what would it be?
Advice I would give, another cliché, is to push yourself to be the best sometimes, personally for me myself is my biggest obstacle so to just be yourself and work and try your hardest.
What are your plans for the future? Are you going on to further study after college or into employment? What is your end goal?
Do you have any messages for the lecturers?
I’d like to thank all my lectures for the support and amazing advice and help over the last year it’s been so wonderful.
What are you most proud of that you have achieved while studying at Edinburgh College?
I’m really proud of myself and happy at how my confidence has come on and I think that has a lot to do with the lectures and all my friends and all the amazing people I’ve met.
Describe your Edinburgh College experience in three words.
Exciting, rewarding, welcoming
