Dami Makinde

Let Us Learn Project Co-lead

Dami, originally born in Nigeria relocated to the UK at age 8. Growing up in the UK, Dami was undocumented until shortly after her 21st birthday. After receiving her status from the Home Office, she applied to university in the hope to pursue her goals of being a criminologist. She later found out that she would be classified as an international student despite being legal in the country. She joined Just for Kids Law after looking online for help and realising that she wasn’t the only student in this situation. She now spends her time empowering and developing young leaders like herself to be brave and courageous about their stories.
