Hi there,

I'm Nurjahan. 

I'm an educator, public speaker, community builder, and a survivor of gun violence. The one night I thought had destroyed my future became the catalyst that made all of my dreams come true. My personal experience and the far-reaching impact of my work is evidence that no matter what you face in life, you can find connection, purpose, and joy in the aftermath.

Praise for...

"Nurjahan's empassioned reminder of why we need to face our fears in order to live fully, was beyond inspirational" 

Mita Banerjee, Professor of Psychology

"Nurjahan's spirit and guidance transformed the participants. Her light will always be so precious to me. I can't wait to do it again." 

Sandy Anglin Phillips, Founder of Survivors Empowered

"I got so much out of watching Nurjahan's webinar, and though I have had 11 years as a professional counselor, I still learned new things from her - things that I plan to implement with my patients who have combat related post traumatic stress."

Christine Bruce, Licensed Professional Counselor

"I survived domestic violence, and I worried about my children's safety every day. During the 6-week Feel Safe Again™ Program, I was able to identify fears that I had pushed down for over 15 years. I healed pain from my last abuse and actually discovered why I had certain fears and blocks. I’ve opened up my doors to complete happiness and have gotten highly noticed by my bosses at work. It's all a part of the set up for my raise. It's a wonderful feeling."
