"It’s such an honour to receive this award and I’d like to sincerely thank the University. The training, encouragement and opportunity offered to me through the MATV course, and latterly the BBC Writers Room, have been life-changing and have enabled me to pursue a career that initially seemed like a pipe dream. It’s always a pleasure to come back to the University, where I’m continually impressed by the level of creative talent about to enter the industry, under the careful watch of the MATV tutors – who have been an incredible support to me throughout my career."
