2017 in Review: My best year yet!
Looking back on 2017, I can honestly say it was my best year to date. Granted it had many challenges, but it was the year I grew exponentially as a person, as a leader, and as Iman. It was also a year of many firsts.
Here’s a look at some of the top highlights of 2017:
I visited 4 countries, 3 of which were completely new (the UK, France, and Tanzania)
I did my first podcast, read more about my interview with Afracanah here
Had the opportunity to speak at 4 different conferences in Europe and Africa
Judged my first two startup pitch events
Got appendicitis and as a result completely changed my eating and cooking habits. Became a vegetarian/borderline vegan
Lost 18lbs as a result!
Got connected to a church that brought community and a much needed refreshing into my spiritual world
Learned that teams follow the behavior of their leader, and that leadership is about action and less about what you say
Completed a School of Leadership
Started leading a connect group, focused on developing relationships & building people
Shot 2 weddings
Started posting publicly on social media, which I hadn’t felt comfortable doing for awhile but had also wanted to start for a long time
Visited 5 different places in Kenya with friends
Intentionally built deeper relationships with people around me
Given all of these varied things that took place across many different areas of my life, professionally, spiritually, and personally, I am very excited about what 2018 has in store for me. Look forward to speaking, travelling, and making more meaningful impact in 2018. Bring it on!
