Dwayne Fields

Dwayne Fields

Born in Jamaica, Dwayne Fields came to the UK at the age of six.

His formative years in the UK were in inner-city London and, wrapped up in the world of street gangs, he became a victim of both knife and gun crime.

After a life-threatening incident, Dwayne Fields made the decision to change his life… forever.

Fast forward and Dwayne became the first black Briton to walk over 400 miles to reach the Magnetic North Pole.

Dwayne is also one of the explorers guiding two-time Academy Award® nominee Will Smith on Welcome to Earth, a Disney+ original series from National Geographic, an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime adventure around the world to explore Earth’s greatest wonders and reveal its most hidden secrets.

He is also working on his own series for Disney+ and National Geographic called Seven Toughest Days in which he will push himself to the absolute edge by getting dropped into some of the most extreme places on earth – during the harshest time of the year – for seven whole days.

’I’m delighted to endorse Dwayne Fields, I’ve said before how inspired I am by people like Dwayne. It takes a lot of courage, tenacity and will to start a challenge of this nature, as I know myself. I love the fact that he has broken the mould, and that he actively seeks to inspire young people particularly in cities.
