Wilfred Kiumi has long had a passion for the creative media industry. He worked for two years as a hairdresser in Maringo, Kenya to save up fees to study for his degree in TV production. After graduating, he wanted to ensure that others had access to affordable education and thus he founded Africa Digital Media Institute in 2011.
From a humble start with five students and Kiumu as the only teacher, he worked freelance jobs to support the costs for running the institution. Over time, ADMI grew to become a leading creative media and technology training institution offering courses at certificate and diploma level at its Nairobi campus. Today, ADMI has over 300 students from 10 different countries with plans to open a campus in West Africa in early 2018.
