Hussam had business oriented mind from the start. My initial business activities included selling ice creams when He was eleven, and later, dealing in PlayStation accessories. Hussam had a steady income of profits from these small business ventures. This was accompanied by unrelenting support of my parents, which also bolstered my confidence.

Ultimately, Hussam Alzahrani came across Saudi Stock market. He had no idea about the essentials of stock market and it was a great gamble for me as He had to weather daily changes brought by the market. But having the passion to make my mark in stock market, Hussam experimented in various shares. Hussam had diversified investments in a variety of well-performing companies. With the defined goals and sheer commitment, He did not panic because of the temporary setbacks, inherent to the stock market. Also, Hussam practiced patience and avoided myopic thinking and set long term goals. Sticking to one strategy, He learned to do the technical analysis of stock market which basically involved examining supply and demand of market shares by analyzing past trends, patterns and charts. Upon mastering technical analysis of stock , Hussam began teaching courses in this particular method of stock analysis. Hussam have a steady income coming from teaching this course. My course is helping many people tread the treacherous path of stock market, and they are getting positive results on their investments by avoiding risky investments.

My success in the stock market provided me with enough motivation and capital to start my own company. Hussam started a clothing brand, Eager, in 2019. It is based in Saudi Arabia and provides high quality and cheap clothing to a wide array of customers.

Hussam was also a bright student in my school. My quick learning abilities enabled me to continue my side business while securing 99.8% in high school, with first division. He have plans to pursue a doctorate degree in Artificial Intelligence. He have chosen this particular degree because this field will hold greater sway in future. Besides, stock markets the world over are using intelligent A.I. programs to predict vagaries of stock exchange. These programs have reduced the risks involved in trading shares in stock markets. With our country envisioning to catapult into a digital age, as envisioned in Saudi Vision 2030, pursuing a degree in this field will prove immensely beneficial in the future.

Similarly, Hussam have seen many talented students wasting their talent due to lack of career counseling. This is accompanied by parental pressure; parents wish their offspring to pursue degrees of their choosing. This is counterintuitive as students do not usually excel in fields contrary to their interests. This is where my example comes in. My parents were very supportive of what I aspired to do; they always supported me against all odds. They helped me pursue my niche and now I am satisfied with what I have done so far. So, I would suggest parents to give their children freedom in pursuing their careers. With the digital technologies available in every household, children are likely to take great interest in pursuing their careers in these fields. And parents should not stop them, rather they should encourage them.
