When Reema Zaman was 15 years old, she wrote down 5 Questions to serve as a routine checklist to anchor and direct her daily narrative.
- What did I learn?
- What did I create?
- How did I nourish (my body)?
- How did I move (my body)?
- How did I give & care for others?
The 5 Questions have served as the compass for her storied life, one that has held large swaths of crisis, trauma, distance from loved ones, financial instability, and general uncertainty. The basis of her award-winning memoir, I Am Yours, (soon to be a Hollywood movie), Reema learned to use crisis, upheaval, and her 5 Questions as her education and fieldwork for life, relationships, and success.
Perfectly equipped to speak about creating calm and confidence during times like this, Reema shares examples of renowned leaders and inventors throughout history whom we associate with extraordinary courage, innovation, and cultural impact, to illustrate how, unknowingly, they too used the 5 Questions to serve the world and accomplish extraordinary feats. Additionally, Reema shares personal life-renewing wisdom on befriending silence and solitude through self-driven education, exercise, and meditation, on using adversity as leverage for growth, on using art and entrepreneurship as a ladder out of uncertainty, and clear strategies for creating a path forward during crisis.
