The Blind Adventurer
Motivational speaker, blind entrepreneur, world traveller and television personality Amar Latif’s unique life story, personal magnetism and inspiring outlook on life make him an incredibly in-demand international motivational speaker, having delivered motivational speeches to organisations such as the United Nations, the NHS, HSBC & Barclays.
Amar has an astonishing track record of facing up to major challenges. Due to an incurable eye condition, Amar lost 95% of his sight by the age of 18. Through sheer determination, he has managed to turn an unpromising tale of loss, into one of truly inspirational achievement.
Amar became known to millions through the groundbreaking BBC2 reality series, Beyond Boundaries (series 1), a jungle endurance expedition across Central America. Screened worldwide, this was a gruelling 220-mile trek on foot across the rugged interior of Nicaragua, from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. Amar had to ford swollen rivers, cut through dense jungle, cross waterfalls, climb a 5,000 ft. active volcano and navigate the second largest lake in Latin America.Read More
