About Andrietta Bambi
My Name is Andrietta Simbi, and I’m 22 years old. I grew up in Zimbabwe and came to the UK with my father and sisters in 2007. Coming to this country was a dream my mother had for us to have an opportunity to grow up free with many possibilities around us. Fast forward to now, I attended University at Demontfort University studying drama and am grateful to have had the life I do with the opportunity to explore my passions.
My background in filming started when I was young; that’s when I had my first spark, you could say. Watching Pirates of the Caribbean and being so engulfed into a world with characters, places and moments that felt so real they made my childhood. I feel stories are the backbone to us as people, and film allows us to share them in inspiring exciting and beautiful ways. So far, I have created three films and continue experimenting and finding ways to share with those around me and the world.
