"I was working for street and working children of India for 11 years as a dance facilitator as well as a performer before joining the course. Through my work, I find dance movement psychotherapy (DMP) an effective vehicle to tackle psychological trauma of children. DMP has a dynamic combination of three study areas and requires a tremendous special skill. Goldsmiths has a deep historical foundation of DMP in the UK and is playing an intellectual and practical leading role in the art therapeutic world. My favourite place, I would say as a PG student, is the library. It has a great collection of books in my field and is open for 24 hours.
I feel my course is very intense emotionally, practically and theoretically. However, all my tutors who are forerunners of UK DMP have been very supportive from the day one. And my lovely peers are sharing this challenging moment together.
I was very delighted to be awarded the scholarship by Goldsmiths, not only because it financially helped me tremendously, but also it made me feel my work experience and its consequence of having chosen the course in Goldsmiths was recognised profoundly. I cannot say thank the university enough. The scholarship has realised my five-year long dream of coming to Goldsmiths, and it also motivates me to work on my new study much harder."
