Adventure School: Motivating students to be leaders of their lives

An Adventurer's Guide to Success (Keynote)

Students face a lot of pressure in high school. Pressure to keep up their grades, maintain their friendships, and appease their parents. Many students believe that one bad paper or exam might dictate the rest of their life. With so much going on, it is sometimes difficult to see the bigger picture, and it is easy to forget about the things that are truly important to them. 

Amir acknowledges this pressure on students, having gone through years of post-secondary education, and eventually opting for a life as a professional adventurer. 

Through inspiring and often hilarious tales of adventure, mishap and successes, Amir takes students through the process of pursuing their passion.  He's experienced the benefits of patience and persistence, as he created a life of adventure for himself and those around him. Amir uses appropriate humour, storytelling, and riveting multimedia to reach and engage students. 

Amir holds 2 university degrees and understands the importance of higher learning. He is currently the owner of Overhang Adventures Inc, and Outdoor Adventure School.
