Writer Biography – Antonia Woodward

F401b41ad3 headshot

I was born in Edo State in Nigeria into a polygamous family. Due to the challenges within a polygamous home, my mother left the marriage after the death of my younger brother. Consequently, I stayed with my grandparents who I loved dearly. I was introduced to storytelling right from a young age by my grandparents, uncles, and aunties who tells the kids story after dinner every night.

I then moved to Lagos to live with my uncle. In my early 20s, I moved to London where I studied Social Sciences at Kingston University and specialized in Mental Health. I have always wanted to be an actor and a writer, so did a few courses with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and other drama schools. I couldn’t pursue this passion because I had to get a stable job to support my family. I met my Australian husband in London. We have three beautiful children. After nearly 25 years in London, working under extreme stress, we decided to move to Australia in 2017. In Australia, I trained as a real estate salesperson as I enjoy buying and selling houses. But I quickly realised that selling houses is very stressful and time consuming, which will defeat the purpose of moving to Australia. I decided to pursue my first love and studied at New York Film Academy in Gold Coast.
I feel blessed to be able to pursue what I have always dreamed about.
