Ziad Ahmed

“People are so much more multi-dimensional than one thing, It’s OK to be whoever you are.”


Ziad Ahmed is a sophomore at Yale University. He is an American-Muslim student activist, entrepreneur, and speaker.

Ziad founded a teen organization, Redefy (www.redefy.org), committed to furthering equality in 2013. Redefy has grown immensely with hundreds of international students on the team, over 3,000 likes on Facebook, and over 100,000 hits on redefy.org. Through Redefy, Ziad has been recognized as a 2017 Global Teen Leader and has been personally commended by President Obama.

Ziad has also done significant work in progressive politics working for presidential campaigns, his local congresswoman, and the US Department of State in various capacities.

As an entrepreneur, Ziad has co-founded JÜV Consulting (www.juvconsulting.com), which is a Generation Z marketing consultancy. He serves as the CEO of the company, working to empower Generation Z with the opportunity to communicate directly with businesses about what exactly appeals to youth. JÜV Consulting has worked with Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, non-profits, and more.

Additionally, he has given four TEDxTalks, has spoken at forums such as the Council on Foreign Relations, has written for publications such as Teen Vogue, and serves on boards such as the Marketing Advisory Board for DoSomething.org. Overwhelmingly though, Ziad is just your average teen grappling with identity, struggling to balance it all, pursuing his passions, and spending way too much time on twitter (@ziadtheactivist).
