"To be learning within this environment this closely with a company is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in as it gives you the chance to learn so much and shows you’re eager to learn and take on new things. Being a part of this gives us amazing opportunities to perform in such amazing things such as doing the curtain raiser for JV2." Natalie YDC Member
