This week’s past pupil profile features Mary Fulforth. We asked Mary lots of questions and it is so interesting to hear what path she is on now! The Stage was not where she wanted to be but Little Voices helped her with so many life skills that prepared her for her career as a physiotherapist!

I graduated from Northumbria University July 2013 with a BSc Hons in Physiotherapy. Then I went to France for 4 months in the alps, over winter, doing a ski season – which was amazing. And now I’m back home in sunny Lancashire working as a full time junior physiotherapist in East Lancs and I’m really enjoying it.

I’m planning on staying in this job for the next couple of years, then I really hope to jet off again to experience some other parts of the world & who knows, maybe work as a physio somewhere in the world.

I do believe I was one if the first people to join Little Voices back in 2007. I stayed for the next 3 years achieving Grade 8 with a Distinction. It has most definitely made me a more confident person in all aspects of my life. I loved lessons every Tuesday night, full of fun, laughter & doing something that we all enjoyed so much.

I would say to anybody, even those who aren’t confident enough to join a school play or sing or speak in public, to join Little Voices. I certainly wouldn’t have been in 3 of my school’s musicals had I not gone to Little Voices.
