Ryan began his international travel at the age of 1, when his parents decided to take him to mainland Mexico for his first birthday. Since then, Ryan has been to over 60 countries, sleeping in just about everything from cow dung huts in remote villages to luxurious 5-star hotels in the world's trendiest cities. Throughout his travels, it has been the people that Ryan has met who shaped his desire to give everyone the opportunity to travel and interact with people from different cultures, faith backgrounds, social statuses, political parties, and worldviews. With a willingness to learn & empathize, is it these cross-cultural experiences that produce deeper understanding, peaceful relations, thoughtful inspiration, and in turn culminate in human flourishing for all.
Although small, Tarjeem is really a culmination of the hundreds of people from all corners of the globe that have helped along the way, offering both encouragement and opposition, shared views and different beliefs, and most of all; inspiration to seek a more peaceful world. As Tarjeem grows, we will be adding to the team!
