She then continued her studies at the renowned Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, followed by postgraduate acting training at the Drama Studio London. After writing over 150 letters to get financial support from industry professionals, she got the green light from Jeremy Irons, Michael Frayn and Tom Stoppard who sponsored her studies.
