Anybody interested?

Jay Hutchinson has been working at BBC Jersey for work experience, and he has written an article on what he likes, his views of Jersey and what he would like to do when he is older.

I have been living in Jersey a little over seven years and my main hobby is acting. I have been in some shows, such as The King And I performed at the Opera House in 2002 where I played a principle part and in last years show Sparkleshark at the Arts Centre, where I played the lead, I have a couple of productions coming up later this year including, Oliver (Fagin), Children's Crusade and Gypsy.

Jay Hutchinson on his bike
My bike is great, it gives me exercise and it's fun!

My favourite film is most likely to be either the recent film of Starsky and Hutch or Pirates of the Caribbean. I don’t listen to music that often but my favourite piece of music is The Theme music from Top Gun, but I like listening to older songs like Me And My Shadow and Mack The Knife. As you can see I also like cycling and BMXing, as another hobby.

I have very mixed views on the way I see our island. I do like Jersey but it can get quite annoying when every time you go out it’s most likely that you will see somebody you know, that can be good but it can be bad as well, as occasionally I like to just go out by myself and not be bothered.

I like Jersey as there are many opportunities to do things, e.g. Acting, the beach is near and the sports facilities are great! But also the island is annoying, it is probably because I lived in England and could go places for a weekend without getting on a boat or plane but feeling like I was in a different place, I cannot do this in Jersey.

Jay standing next to BBC Jersey
I've enjoyed my time at BBC, I have learned a lot!

Like I said, I like my acting. I would like to see myself moving on from Jersey in just over four years time. I would like to see myself going to a drama school (possibly RADA) and then I hope that I will make it on to the West-end stage as I love the musical atmosphere and after seeing some west end productions, I have decided that I would really like to act on the stage when i am older.

In 10 years time I would like to see myself, possibly married to somebody who loves me back, (anybody interested?), with a few kids, living on the outskirts of London doing shows, but also falling back on my Graphics, which I also love doing but mainly advertising, when there is no acting work.

If you're a teenager and are local to our happy little island of Jersey, then you can Email your story to the BBC Jersey online Team, and you could have your views up on the net, just like I have!!!
