YouTuber, comedy writer and film maker Mawaan Rizwan has shaped an incredible career so far – scriptwriting for CBBC and twerking his way to over 250,000 views for videos on his YouTube channel.

The first time he realised he might be able to make films for a living was when he took part in our Bloomberg Broadcast Programme – an opportunity for 18 – 25 year olds to discover the world of live TV, broadcast and post production.

As Mawaan says, opportunities won’t just land in your lap, but check out his tips on how to get the skills and experience you need to become the artist you want to be.

And with heaps of projects, masterclasses and workshops in media, music and performing arts available in the Roundhouse Studios, there’s never been a better time to #ShapeYourself
