Musharaf Asghar – My Story
My story begins at the moment I woke up in a hospital bed, realising my words were tremendously difficult to say. Sitting beside me was my mother, distraught whilst she watched me unable to get my words out. I was heartbroken, embarrassed, confused. This moment I remember so vividly was where the journey to finding my voice began. I knew it was within me to find my voice again.
Normal tasks felt like pushing water uphill with a fork! I didn’t understand as to why i was the only one feeling this way. Physically I seemed perfectly fine, but mentally the battle was brewing. I had my fair share of facing adversity and the old depression had arrived with a suitcase. I knew this was a battle I needed to overcome. A fight I would not turn down and give in to.
I dreamed. I believed. (Took some rest in between). I achieved.
Why Book Me?
I have gained confidence in covering a vast range of topics. The immensely positive responses to my speeches have proved the power of words, and the power of storytelling, and how this can spur those feeling held-back to never give in, no matter how many tears are shed in the process.
As well as my drive to motivate and inspire my audiences, I have secured a plethora of qualifications which allow me to speak articulately on a wide range of topics, and deliver audience-appropriate material. These qualifications also reflect my willingness to engage with topics often regarded as challenging, and show how I am trained to engage sensitively with these issues.
