EIGHTEEN-YEAR-OLD Georgia Derrick has left her Fuengirola home for Liverpool, she has begun her studies at the city’s Institute for Performing Arts, famously founded by Sir Paul McCartney.
The teenager has already got some solid performance experience behind her which will stand her in good stead.

Georgia plays the saxophone, and has appeared in the band backing local radio station Central FM’s presenter and performer Ian Jacks.
For the last couple of years she has been honing her entertainment skills working during the summer for one of the coast’s leading holiday companies, Club La Costa just outside Fuengirola.
Georgia has been part of the busy Team Marina crew who keep mums, dads and kids alike entertained during their holidays.
She hung up her Team Marina T-shirt last week after spending the summer in charge of the three to six year olds in the kids’ camp at the resort, as well as playing her saxophone in the weekly cabaret.
Georgia had been offered a place at Cardiff University studying international business and Mandarin Chinese, but her heart was set on the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, and she was thrilled when she heard that she had been accepted to study music, theatre and entertainment management.
She had spent a week in Liverpool on an acting course, at the age of 15, and fell in love with the city.
“I am really looking forward to it, but Spain is my home, and I shall miss all my friends. I will be back and am keeping my fingers crossed that I can work for Team Marina again during the holidays,” said Georgia.
After completing her degree she wants to move into entertainment management, because she loves “organising things”.
