Tell us a bit about your background and family – it could be culture related, religion or anything else?

My family and I originate from Bangladesh. I was born in North London in the 90’s – the coolest era! Growing up as the youngest of three siblings meant that I got the lion’s share of the attention, but it came at the cost of being teased and ridiculed, if you don’t have a sense of humour as the youngest, you’ll be eaten alive!

What does your culture / background / religion mean to you?

My culture and religion contribute so much to my overall personality and values. There is a famous saying in my religion that if a person is not your brother or sister in faith, they are your equal in humanity. So, before any marker of culture or religion, I’m human first.

What was it like growing up, were you always in the UK, or did you live abroad at all?

I’ve travelled a fair bit, but haven’t lived abroad, I don’t think I’m ready to leave London. I love being surrounded by a mix of cultures and religions in London, it meant that growing up, I could learn from different cultures and try so many different types of food! Where else can you try anything from Vietnamese to Persian to Jamaican?!

What brought you to where you are today?

A lot of factors: My drive to be successful. A lot of hard work. A lot of mistakes along the way. Overall, though, I’d say, my parents, who if they didn’t come to this country, I might not have had the opportunities that I did, so I’m very grateful to them.

And finally, how would you summarise DeVono in one word?

That’s way too hard, if I had to choose one word I’d say, obsessed. We’re obsessed about delivering an amazing service to our clients. When you read some of the reviews we’ve had, it’s testament to the level of care and obsession there is towards giving our clients a great experience.
