The Opportunity: A conversation with Martin Offiah

‘It spurred me on actually. I loved attention and having Chyke as my brother meant that people wanted to see what I was made of. It gave me the determination to do well.’

‘You have to find it within yourself to make the most of the opportunities that come your way — and opportunities ARE out there for all of us. We just don’t see them sometimes.’

‘I don’t think so — it isn’t like a drug. I just wanted to improve myself all the time, to keep the journey going forward.’

‘To get the opportunity to educate yourself later in life is fantastic — but you have to take it, you have to believe in yourself and find the strength within to be what you want to be.’
