What is your background/story?

I was born and raised in East London by Nigerian parents. Growing up I wanted to be a pro football player, but my parents stopped it as only a small portion of kids make it pro and didn’t want me to put all my eggs in one basket. It wasn’t until after secondary school that I knuckled down education-wise, my sister (18 months older than me) convinced me to study science like her because of my love for nature. It was while studying Chemistry, Biology, and Physics that I stumbled across Nutritional and Sport sciences, the rest is history.

What is your proudest achievement?

Educating myself to MSc level.

Any nicknames?

People now call me Panther because apparently, I look like one! but close mates who grow up with me call me “Greens” because green was my favourite colour.

Favourite is Deadlifts least Assault air bike.
