Journey in becoming a
Growing up in Brooklyn, NY as an Afghani American he learned the importance of being loved by mentors in his community. Enduring and surviving family domestic violence, alcoholism, drugs and street violence, he learned the value of work ethic, sacrifice and determination to avoid believing he needed to keep living a life of pain and suffering. He learned he wanted to thrive not survive. Many teachers and mentors instilled a passion to wanting him to become great at helping people find their purpose and chase their own greatness. He learned to be resilient and persevere thorough these leaders of different ethnic backgrounds and religions that saw him as a human who had the ability to change his life to help change the world. They taught him to look and to find what was in someone’s heart and soul not what was on the outside.
He has battled with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to the hardships of life and has a never give up attitude. He has used his strength to help others who struggle with Mental Health. He help start a non-profit called Mental Health for Heroes to serve our first responders who at war with mental health crisis that plagues America. Khalil is all about Love as the motto he learned from a young age from the rapper CHRISTOPHER “B.I.G.” WALLACE says “Spread Love is the Brooklyn Way.” Khalil will do his best to share that message until his last breath.
