    I numbered each reagent and product so you can point and laugh accurately. Any tips would be awesome!

    The route seems excessive, you won't get a significant yield with it, the significance here is converting a secondary amine to a primary amine, you should search for methods that have to do with this topic in general.

    You're approach of creating the double bond seems to be a good initial step, the next one would be to induce the carbon nitrogen double bond since it is more favorable when its conjugated with the Benzene ring.
