I am Amina, it is my goal to help you establish your brand and achieve YOUR goals.
I will guide you on getting set down the right path to success and making those dreams a reality.
At the age of 21 years old, I was making over $40,000 per year.
In 2010, I was a sophomore in college studying Computer Science; all of my peers were consistently getting great job offers to work at companies all over the country. I was smart, I was ambitious, but I was NOT getting job offers like my peers, or any offers that is. It wasn’t until then, that I realized I was the complete package, but my personal brand did not match the persona I wanted everyone to see.
“Conquering the fear of being inadequate was the biggest step to my success.”
I began focusing on the image I was portraying to my peers, companies and myself. I began extensive research on branding, marketing and even public speaking. I learned the importance of having a brand even as an individual. What you represent and what you are known for is everything in this day and age. Many fail to realize, but marketing begins with initial contact. From that moment on, I made sure everything I did fell in line with my brand. Fear was the first thing I had to let go of. Conquering the fear of being inadequate was the biggest step to my success. I never thought that if I believed more in myself the rest of the world would fall in line.
“That was just the beginning, between 2011 and 2013, I worked for several space and defense companies, travelling and living around the country virtually expense free….”
Shortly after I started working on my personal brand things began to look up. I got my first STEM related job offer to work at one of the nation’s most profound laboratories. I traveled to New Mexico, expense free to live and work in beautiful Los Alamos, New Mexico. That was just the beginning, between 2011 and 2013, I worked for several space and defense companies, travelling and living around the country virtually expense free, while doing consulting and branding work for the federal government and serving as a Diversity and inclusion liaison for top tech companies such as Google.
“I had to withdraw from my comfort zone in order reach the heights I never knew were imaginable.”
By 2014 I had gained so much exposure through my community and university and speaking engagements, I had a job offer for over $70,000 without even having to complete an interview. The company came to me, I was given the opportunity to drive my career and pick which position I wanted to be placed in. It all started with me, I had to withdraw from my comfort zone in order reach the heights I never knew were imaginable.
2015 was a year of new beginnings for me. I relocated across country to start my new job and things were slow. I had to reestablish networks, meet new people and start rebranding myself all over again. Luckily for me, I already knew where to start. I began to build traction and within 2 years with my company, I was given a 12% raise. “It is incredible where resiliency and ambition can drive you to.” I was told no many times on my journey, but I continued to work because I understood where my passions were.
“It is incredible where resiliency and ambition can drive you to.”
My passion and ambition have driven me to help others. In addition to being an engineer, and working in the community promoting the importance of STEM careers to minority children, I now work helping individuals like you find their passion cross off those goals off your list.
Daily I continue to broaden my impact, reach new heights financially, and navigate away from my comfort zones, I’m enthusiastic and open to sharing my methods so individuals like you can do the same.
Are you ready to step into your purpose driven future?
