Nihal Ahmed's journey
Nihal’s journey started when he was 18. He was frustrated that schools didn’t leave any room for self-discovery and creativity to permeate. This created a situation where most of us feel unfulfilled, confused, and stressed. It stops us from growing and we’re stuck with someone else’s plan for our life.
He realized that there are three questions that plague most young people:
And over the last 12 years, and with over 15,000 people across every continent he’s actively worked on answering these three questions in as many interactive ways and for as many diverse groups of people as possible.
These courses here are built around the same 3 questions.
And through his company and courses, he wants to impact the lives of one million people by 2025 and help them see possibilities they didn’t see before and take effective action.
