In a world where people are stuck in the race to become financially affluent, Benjamin Brumm is trying to make the world a better place by giving back to the community. He is an inspirational thought leader focused on enhancing the quality of human life globally.
Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, Benjamin belongs to a family with no previous business or international affairs background. Living in a small town, he wasn’t much prone to the business environment, so he worked hard to reach the top through sheer determination, networking and connecting with professionals over zoom calls and LinkedIn.
Benjamin began playing football in junior high and quickly rose to the top level of elite football at the national level, where he excelled as an outstanding football player. After completing a kinesiology course in college, he opted to pursue coaching and focus on his career. He quickly rose to the head strength and conditioning coach position for the Men’s Acadia Hockey team. It was when he realized he needed to mentor his peers and help them improve their living conditions.
When the pandemic started, he opted to take a year off from school because the online-only school was not meeting his needs. To further serve the humanitarian cause, Benjamin worked on the front lines during that time and got medical expertise. He worked in many medical specialties, managed a team at a neighborhood vaccination clinic, and advanced to the top of his profession as a well-known authority – he worked 12 hours a day throughout the week for five months.
During this time, Benjamin discovered the weaknesses and problems of the medical system. He realized how unaffected societal issues were, compared to the culture in which he was raised. He was an empath at heart, and he felt awful for the miseries of all those who lacked vital resources, so he resolved to be the change for the better.
Benjamin believes positivity breeds positivity, and we need more to improve the world. He also believes that by choosing to travel the path of enlightenment, we become mindful of our actions and reactions. Once we let go of personal desires and focus on our surroundings with an unbiased point of view, we become a force for good. It is essential, according to Benjamin, that we each play our part to end the circle of pain and misery for everyone around us.
He knew he lacked the skills and knowledge necessary to change the healthcare system. After around 16 months of intense internal work, he returned to school. He sought help from two outstanding mentors who patiently and compassionately taught him everything they knew about the business world. These mentors molded him into a skillful and insightful leader at the young age of 22.
Benjamin now wishes to enhance the healthcare system both globally and locally. In the coming months, he hopes to expand his network and attract sponsors who will collaborate with him to unite people worldwide to solve poverty, poor health, shattered societies, and inequality.
No matter how little or how much change there is, Benjamin has the ability and enthusiasm to improve the world. He fantasizes about the day when he will be able to give something back to the world that has given so much to him.
Benjamin’s journey teaches us to stay motivated and achieve our goals, no matter how difficult they appear. He is prospering and working hard to become someone who can contribute back to the world for the rest of his life.
