Catherine Higgott

Catherine Higgott is 15 and studies at Ysgol John Brights in Llandudno. During February half term she took part in a Young Brits at Art workshop at the Ty Harpus Youth Club in the town, during which she was encouraged to make a short film based on the fairy tale world of a land without prejudice. Catherine comments, ‘I was playing football with a group of lads I know and other kids in my year started shouting that I was a “Man Beast”. I took this incident and applied it to the ‘mirror mirror’ scene in Snow White taking a picture of myself and the reflection of Snow White - the perfect girly girl! In a world without prejudice I could play football and no one would care.’
