"When you have desire and intention that is so strong, the universe always conspires to make it happen. You just have to be on the look-out!"
~ Shelmina Babai Abji
My phenomenal guest today Shelmina Babai Abji is the epitome of humility, grace and strength yet a force in the empowerment world and a successful visionary of leadership excellence! As a former IBM Vice President and an investor in early stage technology companies and advisor to C-suite executives, one would never know Shelmina’s challenges growing up in the modest beginnings in Tanzania, India would prepare her for her life’s journey of resilience, tenacity and overcoming adversity.
A champion through and through, Shelmina’s childhood formed her life-long values, “We are all products of our choices but the journey starts with your family and childhood.” With a fierce fire inside at the young age of 15, Shelmina’s family trusted her desires to attend college in the United States. Listen in on Shelmina’s innovative methods on pursuing her dream.
As one driven success evolved into the next, Shelmina found herself in a moment of her life where it all crumbled in a matter of days. Find out what happened to Shelmina that made her dig deep and find the courage to re-direct her world.
Shelmina truly believes that based on her life story, if she can achieve success beyond her wildest dreams, so can anyone else. Shelmina currently shares her insights serving on the boards of the United Nations Girl Up and Young Women Empowered movement and she is by far one of my personal pillars of inspiration!
