UCA Acting and Performance graduate Nicola Anastasiou tells us about her lockdown experience and how she was able to do something positive with her time - write a play.🎭⁠ ⁠ Nicola found herself struggling with body image during the lockdown, especially because of the expectation to have a 'lockdown glow up'!⁠ ⁠ Once she reached out to her friends about this, she found she wasn't the only one and so she did a shoutout on social media, from which she got an overwhelming number of women speaking out to her about their experiences. She has used this to write a play.⁠ ⁠ Nicola says she wants to use playwriting to give people a platform to express their feelings!⁠ ⁠ Whilst we have all struggled throughout lockdown, it is good to focus on some positives, like having extra time!⁠ ⁠ Have you experienced anything surprisingly positive throughout lockdown?⁠🤔 For more information on Covid-19 visit https://bit.ly/36dbsAi#WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #lockdowndiaries #playwriting #covid_19 #covid #lockdown #covid19 #corona #coronavirus #lockdownuk #creative #mentalhealth #glowup #lockdownglowup #lockdowntransformation #bodyimage #selflove #bodypositive #loveyourself #bodypositivity
