Lola Famubode

IAG Advisor: Born in London

Born in London to Nigerian parents who came to the UK to study in the early 70s, I moved back to Nigeria with my parents and older siblings to Nigeria as a toddler and lived in the suburbs of the university city of Ibadan. The city, although sprawling, remained rural in outlook and lifestyle, so my childhood memories are filled with countryside joy- playing football in the open fields and tree-climbing with my brothers(I am an only girl) in the daytime and listening to stories in the moonlight and gazing at stars in the evenings . I moved back to the UK in 2002 to go to university, met my wonderful husband and now we have two beautiful daughters and the cheekiest dog in the world called Laramia!
