Here is Something You Should See…


Amin Shaykho admits that his biggest mistake is working hard. After years of hard work and success, graduating university two years early while leading a company that aims to change the way students learn, everything went downhill. He credits the “creativity walk” for his recovery and shares how it allowed him to rediscover himself during the toughest period of his journey. Amin is the co-founder and CEO of the #1 student led startup in the Northwest, Kadama—a tutoring platform that connects students with tutors. He graduated from the University of Washington Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science at the age of 20, before working as a software engineer at Apple for two years and at other companies like Boeing. Amin notes the numerous humanitarian, education, and diversity challenges as a driving force behind what he does and strives to achieve. Amin’s work at Kadama aims to enhance how students learn while making it accessible to everyone. His work at Kadama also combats student debt and provides students the best tutoring opportunities. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
