Ep#3 - Syreeta Fonso

Syreeta's daughter Ayana discovers her outdoor voice.

We speak with Syreeta Fonso about her daughter Ayana's journey to the theatrical stages of London's West End.

To find that opportunity, Syreeta had to follow her instinct 18 month previous. Ayana was diagnosed with high-functioning autism and attending an expensive, acacadmically-led school where using her "outdoor" in class and the hallway was discouraged. Syreeta transferred Ayana to a diverse state school, and then began to pursue an opportunity where an outdoor voice was an asset: the theatre stage.
