Young Deaffest 2017 Mistresses of Ceremonies

Meet the Up For It? Presenters Mia Ward and Rosie Benn!


“Hi my name is Rosie Benn! I’m 22 years old and I live in the UK. The reason I say the UK is because I always move around cities and I am constantly travelling!

I am a freelance filmmaker/presenter/graphic designer/VFX artist and I am also currently a student at the University of Wolverhampton, studying Video and Film Production. I will be finishing my course in May and I look forward to whatever the future will bring!

I am one of 3 presenters for Up For It?, an entertainment TV series aimed at Deaf and hearing children. It is an amazing job and I count myself incredibly lucky to have worked with such fantastic co-presenters and crew.

Have a look out for me and my co-presenter; the fabulous and brilliant Mia, at Deaffest. We can’t wait to be there!”



“Hi! I’m Mia, I am 20 years old and I live in Hertfordshire. I’m one of the presenters on Up For It?

It was super fun and I loved every minute of it! I especially loved working with Nadeem and Rosie-the best team I could ever ask for! 

I’m really looking forward to working with the fantastically talented Rosie again at Young Deaffest where we will be MC’ing!”
