Femi was born in Darlington, lived in Swansea, went to School in Dundee and grew up in Bromsgrove (Midlands). He studied Law with French and began a career in European human rights, working in Brussels and Vienna. He's been using his EU law knowledge to inform the debate since February 2016. He cut his dream Traineeship short to come back to the UK and stop Brexit.
As co-founder and chief spokesperson of Our Future, Our Choice, the youth campaign for a People’s Vote, Femi tours the country to engage with voters and promote discussion around the issues that underlay the referendum. His videos and appearances aim to promote the facts about the EU ignored by politicians, and have been seen by millions of viewers across the UK.
"Politicians failed this country by not giving them the facts about the EU that I learned in law school. I've worked in the field of European human rights since 2015, seeing first hand the value the organisation brings to this country. By anyone's maths, the population that will be dealing with Brexit in just 5 years time will be one that voted remain in 2016. That's an injustice I can't ignore. It's why I quit my traineeship at the EU agency for Fundamental Rights, because even though it was my dream role, if I didn't do everything in my power to prevent Brexit, I would never forgive myself."
