Aimee Leigh studied BA (Hons) Acting and graduated in 2011. After looking at several universities, she decided that the acting course at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) was the one for her and was inspired by the tutors which she encountered.
Since graduating, Aimee has opened her own business and owns the Pauline Quirke Academy in Preston, working with young children and inspiring the next generation.
Aimee described the way that her time at UCLan helped her in her career: “My time at UCLan helped me to get to where I am now by equipping me with the knowledge that I needed to go out into the world and spread the knowledge of drama and performing arts.”
Her advice for today’s graduates is the motto of the Pauline Quirke Academy: “Be yourself and be amazing and that’s what I think you should be.”
