The British Council is pleased to support Stephanie's work as a disabled artist and emerging young leader.

Stephanie launches her first book of poetry Shades at Gateway Theatre in January 2022. Shades is a nuanced study of a woman living with cerebral palsy through the lens of woman, mother, wife and others.  

Stephanie has worked with the British Council since 2018.

In 2018, she performed a self-written monologue ‘MUM’ at Centre 42 as part of Project Tandem’s Making a Stand. She was also a cast in Suddenly I Disappear: The Singapore ‘d’ Monologues, the first disability-led theatre collaboration between Singapore and UK. 

In 2019, Stephanie graduated from the SYNC Singapore, the flagship leadership programme for emerging disabled artists co-organised by the British Council. 

In April 2021 she participated in the specially curated diversity showcase presented by the British Council, Connections. 

We are proud to have played a role in Stephanie’s growth as a young disabled artist.
