Trainee Placement for 'In My Own Words'

Kym Clearie

“Hello, my name is Kym and I am 17-year-old, I go to school in Royal School for the Deaf Derby.

Why did I want to join drama?

I love doing drama because it makes me feel like a challenge. I’ve been in the TV show called, Mission Employable on CITV. The part made me feel so proud to be deaf and I can do it, because sometimes people say I can’t do this and I was a little scared thing, but I try to show to them and it make me feel confident and strong show to them. That’s why I want do drama and TV, to show the hearing world that deaf people can do this too.

I like sport. I have done the disabilities cup for football and my team won two years and I am also and FA coach Level 1.”
