I’ve spent the last 3 days in South Sudan with Bashar and this guy is truly one of a kind. We got connected through Instagram about a month ago, and I didn’t know much about him or his story until I slowly discovered it as we’ve been roaming around Juba (the capital city).
Long story short, he grew up very poor without ever stepping inside a school, taught himself IT from YouTube videos and worked his way up the chain to run a multi-million dollar business in South Sudan.
Not only that, but he gives back a large amount of his wealth to fully support his parents and 14 siblings back home.
Special thanks to you, Bashar, for showing me around your city and I can’t wait to meet again sometime soon!
