Hi Sara, tell us a little about yourself…
I’m Sara, I’m 18 and a sentence that probably best sums me up is:
’50% Indie, 50% Goth and all in a body that dresses like your nana’
We love books! What is the last book you’ve read, and why should we read it?
The last book I read was ‘The Mobile Library: Case of the Missing Books’ by Ian Sansom. I think everyone needs to read this book because the main characters life is basically one big case of Schadenfreude – Nothing he does goes as planned! Plus the fact that he is a librarian which makes my little geeky heart go ‘Ba-doing!’
Apart from this my favourite books are the Harry Potter series, and the Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I’d like to say I’d read something intelligent and literary but the closest I’ve come to that is probably ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ – After studying English Literature for four years my brain doesn’t seem to want to tackle anything too ‘deep.’ ha ha
What do you do when you’re not volunteering?
My life pretty much revolves around amateur dramatics right now. I’m a complete drama queen, so I figured if I’m going to overact anyway, why not do it in front of a paying audience. I’m currently in the cast of ‘Les Miserables’ (My favourite show ever!) which is a dream come true. Though I still can’t figure out why it’s set in 19th century France, but everyone talks like a cockney… weird!
How have you found your time at Globe so far?
It’s been mental… in a totally good way!! I’ve loved every minute because I’ve met so many cool people and learned loads of new skills that’ll hopefully help to get me a job in the future. For example: how a gallery prepares for a new exhibition; how to handle delicate art correctly; how to pack art depending on what materials it’s made from.
Where would be your dream place to live?
Definitely New York City. I visited it last year and it’s just so busy going on. It seems like you could live there for a decade and never meet the same person or do the same thing twice – there’s something I find infinitly awesome about that.
What is your favorite spot (pub, club, gallery, hill, etc.) in Newcastle upon Tyne?
Hmmm… Would probably have to be the Metro Radio Arena – It’s where I saw my first ever gig (Mcfly, aged 12 *cringe*) and where I fell in love with the awesome comedic force that is ‘The Mighty Boosh’.
And finally, what are your plans for the future?
I’m off to the big bad city of London in September 2011 to study Drama and English Literature at university. And what can I say? I’M TERRIFIED!!
Thank you for your answers, Sara!
