Meet Zaheen: Inspiring, Motivating and Thought-Provoking
To meet Zaheen and hear her speak, you see a woman of assurance, courage and confidence. You would presume that achieving success was an easy road for her, but in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
Born in Kenya, Zaheen had a good childhood up until the age of 6, when she was made to skip grade 2 and enter a pilot project for smart kids. At this point in her life, everything changed. After being mercilessly bullied for several years, she developed a severe speech impediment, and couldn’t even say her own name without stuttering.
At the age of 15 her parents sent her off to Canada in order to take advantage of better educational opportunities. To be torn away from her parents with such a debilitating speech impediment was a harrowing experience which caused Zaheen to lose all confidence in herself and, not surprisingly, turn to food for comfort.
Zaheen slowly began her transformation of overcoming her speech impediment. She underwent speech therapy, and completed her education in Nutrition & Food Science and Environmental Health.
But Zaheen was once again faced with adversity when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 41. (Read more about her battle with breast cancer here.) As a breast cancer survivor, Zaheen has had more than her fair share of hardship, and is well qualified to talk about resilience.
And talk is what she does! Zaheen is now a sought-after transformational speaker. Her own experiences have inspired her to share her system of success and transformation, a hybrid of science and technique called the RESILIENCE REFLEX™ where she teaches her clients and audiences how to easily embrace change and bounce back so that resilience becomes a first reflex.
Zaheen is also the author of more than one award-winning book. Her book about behavior weight loss, “Attract Your Ideal Weight,” won a bronze medal at the Global E-book Awards and was featured in the top 10 in Women Business Owners Today E-zine. “The Resilience Reflex” became an international best-seller on Amazon Kindle in 4 categories.
Zaheen offers a variety of keynote presentations:
- The Resilient Leader - Tap into Your Tenacity & Create Your Legacy
- Building Your Resilience Reflex™
- Resiliency In The Workplace - Roadmap to Creating a Resilient Mindset
