What’s your story
My passion for film was ignited back when I was living in the refugee camp, I have always been very curious about digital content, this pushed me to get closer to FilmAid International, an NGO that offers film training to refugee students. I was one of the lucky beneficiaries on the film training program, the program is a 9-month long certificate program and the training started in January 2016 and ended in September 2016. The same month, through a sponsorship, I came to ADMI to continue with a diploma in Film and TV production. Upon successful completion of the diploma program, I got a job with Whats Good Studios, a film production company, as a Cinematographer/Editor which is where I am currently working. On the other hand I run my own startup production company called African Creative Triangle.

As much as it is exciting, the industry can throw you down a few times but always stand your ground and never give up.
