We are pleased to welcome to our beautiful team our new Ambassador, Na’eem Adam. Na’eem is a Director of marketing for Golo, founder of Parvin Marketing Inc. and CMO of Le Burger Week and La Poutine Week. He is also a blogger and father of a beautiful boy named Zayne. We asked him a few questions in order to get to know him better.
1. When did you start wearing glasses?
I was a kid in elementary school. I remember breaking them over and over again.
2. What is your go-to style when it comes to eyewear?
Classic is my go to, but it always needs a touch of refinement. Sometimes that comes with the brand, but other times with the details and quality of the design and build.
3. What are your hobbies?
If you know me well, you know I love to follow fashion and design. I'm not one to adopt all the trends, but I love the phenomenon around fashion and how it impacts culture. Learning and bettering myself is an obsession as well. From fitness to philosophy.
4. What’s your go-to health tip?
Meditation is underrated and very powerful. I don't like to "preach" about it as I think it's fundamentally an introspective and self-awareness exercise, but when I'm asked how I balance things, I usually answer, "I don't, I accept things" and that mentality comes from the benefits of consistent mediation.
5. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a boxer! I did several types of martial arts from a young age and even achieved my black belt. But, I eventually grew out of the idea and entrepreneurship became my biggest interest.
6. What is your favourite meal?
If the calories don't matter, a good burger and a freshly made poutine, no doubt. But I'll be equally happy with a tasty and healthy meal. Or pizza. Pizza always wins.
7. Do you have a hidden talent?
I don't think so, unless it's hidden from me too. I'm pretty good at making coffee!
8. Where would be your dream destination?
Travelling is not part of my "dreams". My parents were very good about exposing us to the world and we've travelled immensely. It's very easy to go anywhere these days. But I do hope to be able to take my son to any destination he wishes at least once a year.
9. What is your favourite colour?
Black. Navy blue.
10. Why are you proud to be an IRIS Ambassador?
I like what IRIS stands for as a brand and I like glasses! But, I also know how something as simple as a pair of glasses can change someone's life. What IRIS does with IRIS Mundial is important and needs to be amplified and respected.
