Born in London, I spent the early part of my life in Nigeria, West Africa. After becoming deafened following meningitis when 13-years old, I was relocated back to London, England by my father to continue with my education while receiving medical treatments.  I went to a Partially Hearing Unit in a Comprehensive School.  I was left unable to walk by meningitis; but with the aid of daily physiotherapist session and extra self-training, I not only regained the ability to walk again, but I was selected to be the Captain of my School’s Athletics and Cross Country Teams. After leaving school, I went on to college and then to the university where I was also Athletics and Cross Country Captain. I have graduated with four degrees and have undertaken various roles, including within the fashion, legal, government and financial corporations where I took a leading role in a £100m project.
