Karen Asemper has graced the screen in several much loved soaps, such as Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Doctors. She has also worked with Patrick Stewart and Anna Friel. This was not however her first choice of career, but after pursuing her first love of dance and training at two of the most prestigious dance schools in the world, Northern School Of Dance and Alvin Ailey, what seemed to be just another punch from the hand of fate in a long line of adverse luck, she was badly injured and told she would no longer be able to dance professionally.
What must have felt like the final blow came after her move to Leeds where she half escaped but half clung on to a past which saw her at the age of three watching an alcoholic suicidal mother attempt to leave this world, then growing up suffering constant racial abuse to varying degrees and climaxed at 17 with her boyfriend trying to put her on the streets as a sex worker.
Not surprisingly Karen learned to escape from much of this torment by immersing herself in her dreams. Through a strength no one can fully comprehend, these dreams manifested into a solid focus and then a self belief that has powered her into the woman she is today, a belief that we all have choices and the ability and right to make them.
She is truly an inspiration to us all and a welcome reminder that what we hold inside of us can bring us untold richness.
