When Naomi started Meet a Mentor programme 3, she wanted to specialise in theatre production. She also sat as a Young Observer on the Board of Trustees for the Theatre Royal Stratford East and has worked in an arts admin role and as a Projects Assistant at the Barbican Centre.
Naomi set goals that were geared around developing her interpersonal and sector-specific skills and was paired with Megan Taylor, a Senior Graphic Designer. Megan acted as a sounding board for Naomi and they discussed how Naomi's skills could be transferrable to other careers. Megan also introduced Naomi to theatre professionals who could provide more information about working in the theatre.
At the end of the programme, Naomi felt clearer about what direction she wanted to go in and kept in contact with Fran. In June 2018, Naomi secured a role as an Arts and Culture Assistant at the Arts Council.
