A Redbridge student and entrepreneur was this week awarded Alumnus of the Year from his old alma mater.

Gerald Sagoe, who grew up in Redbridge, received the award from Solent University, where he studied BA (Hons) Film and Television.

After graduating in 2008 Gerald went on to co-found So Fraiche, a Camden-based creative agency and was a founding member of the creative think tank Digital Futures Council.

Gerald has been awarded with the Pioneer Award from the charity Prince’s Trust and was named a 30 Under 30 in Future of Ghana magazine.

Gerald also regularly speaks at colleges and schools to inspire young people and he was scheduled to give a lecture at Yale University this year.
