Jessie-Jae absolutely loves attending K-Bis Theatre School and has a fantastic aptitude for the performing arts, however the fees were starting to become a challenge for her family. The Starr Trust paid for Jessie-Jae to attend K-Bis for one year.
Jessie-Jae says, “I can’t believe something like this would happen to someone normal like me!”
Her mum says, “Thank you for believing in Jessie-Jae and letting her live her dream”.
Update June 2017
Congratulations to Jessie-Jae for her theatre school performance on Saturday 3rd June.
The show, which featured students of Goldman’s Theatre School in Brighton, Hove and Eastbourne was held at Roedean Theatre.
Mel and Alex from the Starr Trust went along to support her. Mel says: “It was great to see Jessie-Jae on stage – we loved the colourful tap number and Jessie-Jae’s singing in ‘A Million Reasons’ was beautiful. From the beam on Jessie’s face, she was clearly having a wonderful time doing what she loves most”.
Update Spring 2015
The Starr Trust has awarded Jessie-Jae the funds to attend K-Bis for a further year.
Jessie-Jae says “Just knowing the Starr Trust believes in me enough to help me live the dream for another year makes me so very proud.
Having been given the chance to be an Edward Starr Champion for a second year I promise to put in 110% 7 days a week and make you all proud of me .
I have had the best year and being a champion really does feel like being part of a big happy family.”
Update Summer 2014
Jessie-Jae is in the middle of her exams at the moment, but feeling positive about them and looking forward to taking part in the annual K-Bis end of year show in July. Members of the Trust team are excited to have some tickets to go and watch; more on this soon!
