Today we’re joined by a sporting superstar who has proven that people can achieve anything, even out of brutal hardships.


Efe Obada is a tough-tackling defensive end in the NFL, and one of few Brits playing in the league. But his journey began when he was trafficked to the U.K. at just ten years old and left homeless, before spending the next decade in the foster care system.


He talks to us about the hardship he’s suffered and how he’s become a symbol of hope for millions around the world, proving that nobody is solely defined by the things that happen to them.We spoke to Efe before the start of the 2023 NFL season.
