Dan Syanda

Dan Syanda grew up in Kenya in the 1960s. His aptitude for learning at a school which owned its own plane (!) ignited an existing curiosity about aviation and led him to explore other countries. He found himself first in Poland in 1982 during the time of the Solidarity movement and became a student activist. He also lived in Sweden before coming to Hull in 2007. He considers in this interview how well Hull is known to outsiders and what he thinks has become of the Wilberforce legacy.
