Time & Location
About the Event
Amani is an Award-Winning Visionary, Youth Coach and Change Maker. Founder & CEO of Aviard Inspires, a brand empowering Achievement and Positive Transformation within the lives of adolescents & young adults globally.
Most recently, he launched a successful 15-week campaign called #Ourlockdown amplifying the voices of young people (aged 6-21) during the Coronavirus Pandemic. I was fortunate enough to feature on week 10 alongside other role models sharing words of encouragement.
Based on the true story of Amani Simpson, created the short film AMANI with a great cast, including Joivan Wade (The First Purge, Shiro's Story & Doom Patrol) and guest starring Chris Preddie OBE. The film depicts the inner reflections of a young man battling with the consequences of his actions and the wider impact on those around him after being stabbed seven times. The film is now watched over 2.8 million times on Youtube!
Join me to hear the rest of Amani's story from trials and tribulations to triumphant.
