Sadjida Watkinson

Teaching Assistant

Sadjida was born in Uzbekistan and moved to the Czech Republic when she was eight years old. In 2016, she joined Prague Youth Theatre and discovered a passion for acting. During her time at PYT, she gained excellent public speaking skills, developed her creativity, and was able to connect with a group of people who shared her interests. Sadjida is now starting university and is planning on pursuing Civil Engineering at CVUT. She is confident in her communication and presentation skills because of PYT and is sure that will help her excel in her studies. She has been working with us since 2021 and, alongside assisting with the Juniors and Seniors groups, she also illustrates the team's portraits. Sadjida is excited at the idea of being able to help young people find their identity and confidence through theatre, like she did.
