held The Book Launch ceremony of "Wrestling with the Goddess" by Azeem Kayum.

Azeem Kayum

Azeem Kayum's story is that of bravery and courage, against all odds he has been through. He suffered a spinal cord injury at birth (December 1979), which resulted in severe neurological damage. He spent his first year at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Azeem is now twenty-four years old and despite his inherent limitations, he continues to defy all the medical and educational odds. 

In 2002, Azeem graduated from Seneca College with Honors in Radio Broadcasting. He has demonstrated remarkable levels of discipline, perseverance and resilience and these qualities have contributed to his medical and academic success. He enjoys public speaking and he has been involved in motivational speaking since he was about twelve years old. Azeem maintains a very positive disposition and attitude, which really help him to deal with his disabilities.

Azeem would like to use his autobiography to launch a career in motivational speaking especially to students in both public and high schools. He wrote his autobiography to inspire those who are challenged and to challenge those who are healthy and normal to be more aware of people with disabilities. Azeem would like to partner with Community and Business organizations as he embarks on his motivational speaking career"......

Azeem is indeed a role model for our Canadian Youth and a brave young man
