KK:  Having graduated from a leading university in the UK, with a Law Degree, what inspired you to pursue you to work in Arts once you moved to HK?
  Theatre and Drama have always been a huge passion of mine. I believe it provides us with essential life skills, improves our emotional health, and teaches us to communicate in ways other disciplines do not. Whilst Law was a fantastic degree to study, moving to HK ignited in me, the concept that ‘anything is possible if you really want it’. With this as my motivation, I decided it was the right time to pursue acting and a career in the Arts.

KK: What projects are you currently associated with, in the field of Arts in HK? 
NJ:  Currently I am associated with an upcoming show called From Page To Stage with Hong Kong Players Theatre Company. We will be preforming five shows in the McAulay Theatre in Wan Chai in May. Simultaneously, I am gearing up to Direct my first play in August, in association with Teacup Productions, having been an Assistant Director for their last four plays. 

KK: Are there enough opportunities in the HK in the area of Arts and Theatre? 
NJ:  I think that opportunities are on the rise as schools, parents and individuals are increasingly seeing the benefits that arts and theatre can have on confidence, communication and cultural development. Having said that, I do believe you need to be open minded about the opportunities you accept, especially when you’re new to the scene, because the network you gain is invaluable and is ultimately what will lead to the roles of real interest and impact. 

KK: Which is your all time favorite theatre play and given a choice if you had to play a dream role which one would that be?
This is such a hard question and almost impossible to narrow down, but I’ll give it a go! 
Favourite Musical: Matilda
Favourite Stage Adaptation: Warhorse
Favourite Comedy: The Play that Goes Wrong
Favourite Independent: Tree by Daniel Kitson
My dream role would for sure be Joseph K in The Trial by Franz Kafka. It’s a play about law and justice, but beyond that it’s about the absurdity of modern day society and the alienation it can so often elicit. 

KK: How can Arts & Theatre help our kids?
I truly believe exposure to Arts and Theatre can positively impact children in endless ways. There are immediate benefits such as increased creativity, collaboration, and social connections, and longer term results such as raised self-confidence, self-awareness and self-acceptance. These subjects allow for problem solving, trust building and can even help to overcome issues such as anxiety, with young people learning how to identify emotions, empathise, and express themselves articulately. The world is in need of more emotionally intelligence and creative people, which is exactly what The Arts allows for.

KK: Recently you were part of Women Empowerment Forum how was your experience working with Kit Kat Events & Marketing? 
I was honoured to be the Principle Correspondent for the Women Empowerment Forum event and it was a wonderful experience interviewing such inspiring women, all of whom are so positively active in the community. I really enjoyed working with Kit Kat Events & Marketing; they are incredibly forward thinking and were able to create an event that was diverse, interesting and completely empowering.
