Andy Ayo Akinwolere – A Traveller at Heart at Arts London


Andy Ayo Akinwolere has one of those familiar faces… The sort of friendly face that wouldn’t occur to you that it’s probably from TV that you know them from – and not real life!

Thankfully the charismatic TV presenter, perhaps most known for his contribution to Blue Peter, is someone I’ve been fortunate to meet in real life on a couple of occasions… And it didn’t take very long before I asked Andy to be part of “A Face in A Foreign Space…on the 19th April during Diversity Matters Awareness Week!

Having travelled to over 120 countries, broken world records, and of course being a black face in the media – there’s no doubt Andy’s story will inspire anyone interested in exploring “personal growth through travel…” I caught up with Andy at University of the Arts London (UAL) and captured this message on camera…
