My name is Betsy Mobey and I'm a 23 years old English Romany Gypsy, but we most commonly call ourselves, Traveller’s. I was fortunate enough to shift around up until I was about 8- those were the days and I’d go back to it in a heartbeat. School, wasn’t a great experience – I got into a few scruffs because of that demoralizing word "Pikey", uttered by misinformed and uneducated folks but nonetheless I would always recommend school, because it is important to have a formal education in this century, even if you’re on the move. The schools I went to failed me, I fell through the net, teachers saw me as disruptive, though I saw myself as, inquisitive, creative and intuitive. I auditioned to do Performing Arts at NorthBrook College, got in with very few GCSE’S - and I could finally express myself. This opened me up to interesting jobs, like working on Mika's music video, Adidas and recently I earned my first IMDB credit, in the film OBEY. I’m currently an Intern at Friends Families and Travellers and no more will I fight the lonely, silent battle. I hope to inspire others to speak up, to identify proudly, without fear of judgement.
