Meet AJ

Presenter AJ


Hi I'm AJ Odudu, I'm 20 and from Blackburn.

I'm currently finishing a degree at Keele uni. I started out as a BBC Blast reporter and you might have seen me as the "raving reporter on Switch's very own The 5:19 Show!

What's your top tip for life?

Wow. I don't know what to say without sounding cheesy or cliché but I guess just understand what it is that makes you happy and then, do it!

What's the thing that your worst at?

I'm worst at revising and doing things I shouldn't. Ha. This sounds dodgy. Allow me to elaborate. I've got a really good short term memory so I am the ultimate crammer in terms of revising and in terms of doing things I shouldn't, I mean, being easily persuaded to go out when I'd planned to do work; wearing ridiculously high heels even when they hurt my feet, spending money I haven't got and eating too many pies!

What's the best advice you've ever been given?

Hmmmmm best advice I've ever been given…Go for it! Which is what my friends and family have always advised me to do when thinking about applying for jobs that I was unsure whether I'd be good enough or not. If you don't ask you don't get and one chance is better than no chance.

What was your favourite part about filming the Almost Perfect Guide?

My favourite part about filming was definitely the free food! Ha! JOKE! Erm…I think it was all the things I learnt in the sex clinic - really surprising facts that aren't as obvious as people think and the whole process took me back to my high school days - which weren't that long ago, but it brought a lot of happy memories back which was amazing.
