Born in 1988, Andre grew up on a estate in Peckham called Redding house, where he lived till the age of 8 years old. Andre says, "Living here I had my first introduction to everything. Where I learnt to engage with other people and who not to engage with. 

I had a traditional upbringing and was raised by woman solely, my mom, my grandma, and my aunties. They were the main factors in my life while growing up.

Growing up I was a kid that used to ask a lot of questions, I was always very curious about things and I noticed everything. I always wanted to know reasons behind people’s actions. And when I did learn the reason behind their actions I felt I wanted to do something to help, even from a young age. This has stayed with me and has enabled me to become who am I am today".
