About Ahmed

My name is Ahmed D. and educating people is one of the things I value most in my life. I recently graduated from Bentley University this past spring with a degree in finance. Before this I went to Bryant University where I was a writing consultant to over 50 collegiate students. There, I helped them write essays, business plans, and research papers. I found it quite rewarding to to see people make better grades after having worked with me. I also played for the Bryant University Club volleyball team where I traveled all over the East Coast playing other schools.

Since college, I was fortunate enough to have worked directly with Jay-Z's audio engineer, Young Guru. I currently serve as his director of innovation where I use my finance and writing backgrounds as well as my interest in technology to propose new projects his brand should take on. The main reason I am on WyzAnt is because I find real value in helping other people grow, and my job allows me a great deal of free time to pursue my own interests.

While in college, I wrote over 10 different business plans. Additionally, because I am so into startups I have found myself pitching to investors, world renowned musicians, and well respected Ivy League professors. I also served as a writing consultant for two years, which helped me be able to articulate a given student's stress points.

For two years I worked at Met Life Auto & Home; there I worked on Excel every day and taught myself different tricks to improve my efficiency. When I got to my advanced finance classes in college, I knew how to use pivot tables, different formulas, and other neat tricks on Excel. Currently my job has required me to find valuations for companies, which has only strengthened my capabilities on Microsoft Excel.

I played high school volleyball for all 4 years. When I went to Bryant University I tried out for the club team and made the traveling squad. By half-way into the season, I was already in rotation. I played at Bryant for 2 years for a combined 6 years. In the six years I've played outside, right side, and middle; so I have a holistic view of the game.

I believe we live in a time where anything is possible. Before entering college I never saw myself as someone who would change the world. It took a couple key moments in my life to help me realize that we can achieve anything that we want. I now work directly with the man who had a major hand in Jay Z's success. Growing up Jay-Z was always one of my idols, and it is amazing to see that if you dream, and complement that with hard work, you can do anything in this world. I want to instill that childlike curiosity in my students while helping them achieve their respective goals.

Volleyball

I played volleyball for six years; two of which were at the collegiate level. In those six years I played the positions right side, outside, and middle. This gave me a very holistic sense of the game.
