Is it possible for a young man from a small island in the Caribbean to have great vision, to be a global ambassador, an entrepreneur or a mentor?

Last year I interviewed Hashim Ruan, a young man from St Kitts and Nevis. I first came across Ruan after reading an article on St Kitts and Nevis media website about his cash contribution to the 25 Most Remarkable Teens in St. Kitts and Nevis programme.

At 21, Ruan has huge ambitions to build a global technology business. So far he is heading in the right direction, creating Nanostar Limited. But this young man is also giving back to Caribbean youth by not only representing what’s good about the Caribbean but also being a mentor to other Caribbean youths.

Here is Hashim Ruan speaking to Caribbean youths at a recently launched youth initiative

Ruan is a young man with a vision. He launched an autism campaign in St Kitts and Nevis as well as a #Action2015 initiative in the United Kingdom. Both initiatives are on his agenda to to promote social responsibility . He is even going when step further in his quest to help end poverty and food deprivation.
