Generation 2015 profiles: Kayode Damali

I grew up in Catford, South London and now live in Crewe, working as an affiliate marketer, events manager and independent contractor. I'm also an elected director of the National Union of Students.

I graduated with a first class honours in psychology of sport and exercise from Manchester Metropolitan University. My influence and inspiration stems from individuals who have overcome adversities to become greatly successful.

From my own life experiences my passion lies in empowering young people who come from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as those going through animosity or trouble in their lives.
