Ahmad Najwa

Ahmad moved to the U.S. from Afghanistan in 2005. He studied engineering in college, but when his professor posed the question: If your goal is to help people, what career would you choose? He recalled his dad’s work for the Red Cross in Afghanistan and how he worked with people who lost limbs in landmine accidents. He decided to pursue a POP career, where his proficiency with technology and background in engineering would come into play regularly. Ahmad’s favorite part of the job is watching patients react to taking their first step. He has organized a walking clinic where two former Paralympians work with people with amputations on the mechanics of walking.

Everything we do has a concrete impact on people’s lives. Nothing beats seeing someone stand up for the first time in a prosthetic that I helped design and build.
