23 year old Amir Ebrahim knows no limits. His circumstances growing up in a less than favourable environment could have dictated failure, but in the face of fight or flight, he fought for his dream and is flying high on its reality. This young man is already a leader in the media field with his work being displayed at the Cape Town Mining Indaba, Forbes Africa and various awards ceremonies. His ability to string together information in a way that goes beyond entertainment, saw him headhunted to create unique videos for special events that hosted Dr Paula White-Cain who was former US President Donald Trump's White House Aide, leadership architect, author and change strategist, Dr Sam Chand, and entrepreneur Bill Winston who has an estimated net worth of $5.5 million, to name just a few.
"I decided that I didn't want to work a single day in my life, so I chose to get paid to do something I enjoyed doing. I didn't have all the tools necessary to professionally bring content to life, infact the phone I used to shoot my videos, research, edit and do everything else on was a Huawei P8 lite. As I started gaining recognition and work, I invested time and effort into more research, and money into acquiring the tools I needed to be at the top of my media game. It wasn't a walk in the park, there were challenges but I didn't allow frustration to get the better of me. In the end, it certainly paid off."
Based on his dedication to excellence Amir became the director of his media department at Kingdom Business Network. Amir traveled abroad to learn and understand how to creatively and innovatively improve on digital technology and methods in South Africa. He will be implementing that knowledge as he moves towards his own media company as part of a group of young entrepreneurs who will be empowered through Legacy Nation.
In discussing his take on success he explains, "The easiest way is not always the route to success. Passion, commitment, dedication and perseverance are all ingredients that contribute to reaching your goals and achieving that ever elusive success." Asked what his definition of success is, he replied, "the text book definition of success implies achievement of goals, for some its wealth, to others it could be fame, but to me, I have my own vision and mission and seek to bring it to life on a daily basis. Most importantly, I know who I'm NOT which provides me
with a peaceful, happy existence. I aim to discover and implement the extraordinary within the ordinary as I hope to awaken within people the realization that we cannot achieve tomorrow's solutions using yesterday's methods."
If anything, Amir Ebrahim proves that age is nothing but a number because the wisdom and experience that flow through him go beyond his years.
