These questions stayed with me even as I went on to college and started working after I graduated. They intensified but alas I didn’t feel like I could do anything meaningful
I had always wanted to build a media empire that made people become the best versions of themselves like Oprah Winfrey did and fight for social justice like the late Nelson Mandela.
Alas, I wasn’t brave enough. That was until I was involved in a near death experience. I realized that at the age of 22, I hadn’t done anything meaningful so I quit my job, moved to New York City and began to conduct a social experiment. This social experiment would later become my podcast.
I interviewed leaders in business, culture, travel and global affairs to discuss what it takes for one to embrace one’s global identity and become a global leader. Fortunately, that got featured on Entrepreneur as the number 2 business podcast. I wrote a short book based on my experiences which led me to speaking at conferences where I started sharing principles based on my cultural observations. All this led me to be invited to speak at the World Bank and the United Nations Foundation. Suddenly, I was on to something. Something that my 22 year old self who almost died would be proud of. I realized that I had become a catalyst for change. The very thing I had thought I wasn’t capable of becoming. As an untraditional visionary with inventive answers I have learned to take initiative to uncover inventive solutions.
