Leo C. Akuwudike

Leo C. Akuwudike was born in London, United Kingdom in 1989 and was educated at Langdon School (now called Langdon Academy). For his GCSEs, he passed English Literature taking the test on William Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’. In the summer of 2005 for work experience he worked as an admin assistant for Laing O’Rourke in Canary Wharf.

On his second birthday, Leo won a baby competition for babies born the same day as him. As a child he had a passion for writing, drama, sports, and art. In his teenage years Leo attended and trained at Sylvia Young Theatre School. Whilst at sixth form, he was advised to re-take his GCSE in English Literature in the hope of getting into a good university. From there he took writing classes and for research watched Baz Luhrmann’s movie of ‘Romeo + Juliet’.

He has received a degree in Graphic & Media Design from the University of the Arts London at the institution London College of Communication, graduating in 2016.

In recent years he has modelled at Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion. He has worked with artists Sonia Boyce and Mister Rob as well as working for brand Charlotte Tilbury.

All this diverse experience has been used in his novels and screenplays.
