J Haleem went from working for $8.00 an hour at the Hampton Inn, to earning 6 figures as a Commercial Photographer in just a few years. He was able to accomplish all this while being a convicted felon. While working for $8.00 an hour he developed his mantra #I Won’t Starve which was the catalyst for him to leave his job after only one year. Over his career, he’s been able to work with international brands like Nike, Save The Children Foundation, NFL, Amtrak & The WNBA.
Since then, he has been pardoned, and is now an author and motivational speaker. J Haleem uses the #I Won’t Starve message to encourage and motivate students, entrepreneurs and career-oriented individuals. His goal is to inspire you to build a platform to ensure that U Won’t Starve.
