Emad Rahim is a speaker, educator and entrepreneur. He was born in the killing fields of Cambodia, and was brought to America by his mother. Raised in the poorest neighborhoods of Brooklyn and Upstate New York, he faced economic hardship, abuse, and a learning disability, eventually overcoming these hurdles to convert to Islam and become an entrepreneur. In describing his life, Rahim notes the strong commitments he retains to Islam and the strength his faith has given him to serve and inspire those in his surrounding community, his family in Cambodia, and especially young people.
