Adrian Njie

Adrian is very well travelled. He was born in Beverley, East Yorkshire to Gambian and Sierra Leonean parents but spent his formative years growing up among different nationalities in Gambia as his father was the government’s first Chief Justice. He talks about how the ties and friendships he established nearly forty years ago still allows him to feel equally at home in both places and yet he welcomes the opportunity to travel as a way of providing him with a broader view of other people.
