National newspaper interviews the founder of Endz2Endz.
The Sun newspaper has interviewed E2E founder Dennis Gyamfi on his Spirit Of London Award 2010 for Achievement Through Media.
Check out the interview after the jump which includes, the inspiration behind setting up E2E, and how the magazine and website came about.
DESPITE ongoing chemotherapy treatment for leukaemia, Dennis Gyamfi continues to edit his online magazine endz2endz.com.
Dennis, 21, from Brixton, set up the site, which highlights young Londoners’ achievements, after hearing only negative things about youngsters in his role as a youth worker.
He said: “All I heard was, ‘Young people are good for nothing’ but that wasn’t my experience at all. I met guys who were devoted to their community, who were creating music or organising fashion shows so I decided to create something which told those stories, not ones about knife crime or gangs.”
Dennis scooped a Spirit Of London Award for Achievement Through Media last year.
He added: “Every person in this world has got a dream to become something or to do something.”
