Adama Sadauki was born in Nigeria and educated in England. At 10 years of age she was diagnosed with dyslexia, something that is unlikely to have been discovered in Nigeria. Whilst studying fashion design in London, Adama worked in the hospitality industry, it soon became apparent that her love for looking after people and her natural ability as a trainer lent itself perfectly to a career path as a restaurateur. She has opened restaurants around the world and worked closely with Raphael Duntoye expanding La Petite Maison globally.
As a trainer, education is close to Adama's heart and Christianna Foundation is a way for her to give back to her home country Nigeria.
