Buckhead’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at VoyageATL is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the Atlanta’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool.  Check out Buckhead’s rising stars below.

Kim Schaper

I started training back in 2010 after 8 stints in rehab facilities for depression, eating disorders, anxiety, and trauma. I knew I could use my past struggles to help others and get my own mind out of the victim mindset. I was ready to share my story and I chose to do that through exercise, mindset and a nutrition based philosophy. Read More>>

My mother was an artist and taught me how to appreciate art, and I love collecting art. When the original Arts Festival director founded the Brookhaven Arts Festival (BAF), I jumped at the opportunity to volunteer. The Festival’s first year was 2004, and I have made several lasting relationships throughout those 10 years of volunteering. As a Brookhaven resident, I was happy to find a way to give back to the community that has been so good to me as a business woman. Read More>>

My love for film was fostered at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill while studying Philosophy and Communications. I have always been filming various things with my friends growing up, but never considered it a career path untill joining Student Television in College. I quickly climbed the ranks and was producing my own late night sketch comedy show for the student television cable that I also served on the board of directors. Read More>>

Sabah Ahmad

I grew up traveling around the world, and have lived in four countries. One of the things which I’ve always been drawn to is the uniqueness of Architecture in my travels. My educational background is in International Economics and International Politics. I’ve started and run a Web-startup, a Software Development Co. and a Commercial Photography Co. and now I’ve had my Construction company for the past 17 years, (established in 2000). As different as each of these businesses are from one another, they have each provided me with the opportunity to be as fully creative as I can be, and that is the thread which binds them to me.

Well, it’s been a whirlwind really and it seems like yesterday, because when you are doing what you love, it doesn’t really feel like work. I have been a licensed REALTOR since 2004 and have a background with a major commercial airline. I have always had passion and drive for helping others achieve their goals and growing up outside of New Orleans, my mother was also an entrepreneur. Read More>>
