2021 BAFTA KIDS PRESENTER AWARDS
My name is Aj Ghuman and I'm an actor but in March I was offered to do some presenting on a show but due to COVID-19 I couldn't. Then I was offered an audition at Disney Channel but due to COVID-19 I also couldn't.
Acting has been my passion for as long as I can remember but during COVID-19 lockdown 1, I discovered presenting. All through lockdowns I have practised and practised. No one in Marvell except three teachers know I act as I didn't feel people would accept me, but during lockdown I learnt I should express myself even if others think I shouldn't. In the future, I hope to become a Film and Television actor as this has always been my dream. When I act or present, I feel purposeful and that I can do anything. I just hope that one day society accepts that teenagers, especially boys, can act without being judged.
I am entering into the 2021 BAFTA Kids Presenter Awards. I have to send a short video on how I express myself. This offers me the opportunity to present for BAFTA Kids as well as present a feature on the popular Sky Kids TV show, FYI. Previous winners have gone on to interview stars at BAFTA events, including Tom Hiddleston and BAFTA President HRH The Duke of Cambridge.
Everyone at Marvell would like to thank you for your inspirational story and we would like to wish you all the very best with your entry into the 2021 BAFTA Kids Presenter Awards.
