A Meaningful Difference

"Dr. SaLee' Amina is a person who follows her personal commitments to an ethical and moral lifestyle, despite there being no impetus for her to do so: As a U.S. citizen, she has the liberty to live any type of lifestyle, yet she has personally chosen to devote her life to humanitarianism, academics and spreading her effective vision for world peace and prosperity, through her business advisory consultations with international opinion leaders, heads of state and powerful multi-national corporations; convincing them to invest in 'profit with a purpose'. Most would be chasing the money, but she strives to make a meaningful difference. That is what makes her unique."
