A Message From Molly - A Level Drama 

I wanted all of you to know that Gobstoppers has changed my life. When my school told me I wasn't good enough to take Drama I was devastated. I talked to a friend about her A-Level and she told me about Gobstoppers. I cannot express my love and thanks to her. Since then I have looked forward to each and every drama lesson and rehearsal even when times were hard. I have met some fantastic people on the way.
Many of you will have met me for the first time on the Cornwall tour, which I can say was the happiest few days of my life. We were the dream team and I cannot explain how much I treasure that time .
So, what I am unsuccessfully trying to say is that thanks to Chris Williams and his excellent wife Vicky, I am happier than I have ever been and that I am heading to the University of East Anglia to study English and Drama, thanks to the most excellent and wonderful Gobstoppers. I cannot thank you enough. I would not be the person I am today if it had not been for Gobstoppers. Maybe one day I can come back (rich and famous) and become a True Gobstopper.
Thank you, I love you all with all my heart.
Molly xxx
