Meet The Team: Adaeze Akande
We sat down with our Financial Apprentice, Adaeze to chat about her time at Speakers Corner and why
You've had a month to settle in now, how are you finding working here at the Speakers Corner Towers as a finance apprentice?
I am really enjoying my time at Speakers Corner! I have thrown myself into my work and am learning loads of new things every day. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and I feel like I fit in straight away. Also all the sweet treats are a massive bonus!!
What can we find you doing after work?
After work you would either find me binge watching a Netflix show (my current favourite is Love is Blind & Messiah), finding new restaurants to try, or messing around on photoshop editing pictures that I have taken.
You love taking photos of unusual architecture and London, what is it about photography that you love?
I love photography because it allows me to capture and see things from a different perspective. I also love challenging the power of photography and exploring all the different ways of documenting and telling stories within a singular photo. Photography allows me to experiment and be creative especially when it comes to editing.
As a life-long Londoner, what are your favourite parts of the city? Also, what is it that makes a true Londoner?
My favourite area of London would have to be Southbank. I am obsessed with the brutalist architects and of course the food markets there!
Hmm, that’s a difficult question! I would say being a fast walker is what makes a true Londoner! Can’t be in the fast pace city taking a leisurely walk!!
We love asking this question - what’s your Dream Dinner guest party? Limited to 6 seats at the table
My dream dinner guest list would include, Beyonce, Will Smith, Chance the Rapper, Lauryn Hill, Kojey Radical and Tupac. This may seem like a pretty random list but I admire each one of them and their stories.
