He grew up in the Middle East to a single mother after his father died when he was only 6 years old. In search for the opportunity to thrive, he came to the United States as a teenager with limited knowledge of English and only $50 in his pocket. He supported himself through numerous entrepreneurial endeavors while attending Mount Olive College, then High Point University to receive his bachelor’s degree and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for graduate studies. All three of his alma maters bestowed upon him honorary doctorates.
