After 15 years working in youth group homes, transitional housing facilities, and corrections, Bilal Alaji, the CEO of Illustrious Shoes and O’Ramadan, opens up in his memoir, “This Ain’t My Life,” A compelling story of Bilal's journey to finding his destiny. Growing up Muslim Bilal experiences many trials throughout his youth with his father leading him down an arduous path. As he fights and claws his way out of every obstacle he relies on his faith to pull him through. Bilal shows his willingness to never give up on finding his true purpose. As he goes through failed marriages, criminal proceedings, the shelter system, and lost jobs; Bilal refuses to believe that this is the life he was meant to live. He challenges his reality and what he believes by stating, “This Ain't My Life.”

Changing the narrative for black men and men in general who are affected by the stereotype of being “macho” motivated the transformational leader to write the intimate story of his life and disclose the learning experiences and challenges he had faced becoming a man of defined purpose. 

Bilal Alaji is an entrepreneur, mentor, investor, motivational and public speaker. As the Ceo of Illustrious Shoes and O’ Ramadan, Bilal, is a transformational leader that uses his platform to inspire and educate others.
