Wat je gaat doen

In this Experience, I share with guests lessons on how to keep chasing your dreams no matter what, and why moments of despair can actually represent opportunities for change and success. I’ll help you understand why, especially in those times, taking risks is so important. I want you to go for the thing that has a 1% chance of working out, not the thing that has a 99% chance of working out.

Throughout our session, I’ll tell you my life story. I’ll give you first-hand examples of perseverance, and I’ll show you how I never stopped pursuing my dreams. I faced many challenges in my life, and at one point, was even told to give up on my career as a professional athlete when I was only 24, but I refused to listen, and I’m so glad I chose to keep fighting for my dreams instead, leaving everything I knew and found comfort in behind me as I did so.

I learned so much along the way, and it helped me get to where I am today: an Olympian on his way to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. I want to share those lessons with you and what my journey to the Games looked like, but I also want to hear firsthand about the dreams and hopes you have for yourself and the challenges you’re struggling with along the way so that we can talk about how you can overcome them!


So, Join me for this experience, and let us learn from each other!

Hi, I’m Shahrad and I’m originally from Iran (born and raised). Due to some circumstances I had to leave my country and went to the US. At first, it felt new, I struggled with feeling like I belonged and realized I had to fight harder than ever for the simplest things, like a place to train, to work, not to mention all the other needs and difficulties in my personal life.

Despite these obstacles and the total absence of support, I was able to win first place in the US National Trials. Then, after only eight months of having been in the US, I was selected to join the Independent Paralympic Athletes Team at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio. With no one to assist me, I ranked first place in the US National Trials.

Today I am proud to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Games and I look forward to discovering just how far perseverance can take me

This was a very eye opening story for me. I enjoyed learning about how he overcame the many obstacles on his path. Definitely some good takeaways that I can apply in my life. He's very personable and a genuine person; I feel quite lucky for the chance to meet him!
