Cooper ready for eisteddfod

THIRTEEN-year-old Alex Cooper likes to get dramatic come eisteddfod time.

The drama student will be performing five pieces in the Speech and Drama section of the eisteddfod.

This is Miss Cooper’s third year and says the best thing about the eisteddfod is the confidence it gives you.

“The best thing about performing is being able to know that you can perform with confidence and without be scared or nervous,” she said.

“It feels nice to know that you have confidence to do something like that.”

When Miss Cooper finishes school she hopes to “continue in the drama field”.

It feels nice to know that you have confidence to do something like that.
