In 2006 Nahjee took a creative writing course because as a failing student he needed the extra credit to graduate on time. In 2010, after a series of working odd jobs, he changed course to pursue a career as an author. Three years later, his first book went into publication. Seven years later Nahjee has written seven picture books to encourage every child regardless of their age, color, or religion to be comfortable with who they are and gain the confidence to strive for success.
He was host of a daily television show for two years on Main Line Television from 2015 to 2017.
In 2016, Nahjee was presented with the Main Liners Who Give Back Award in recognition of his achievements as a top philanthropist on the Main Line.
Also in 2016 Nahjee founded All Children Equal Success to inspire children to keep from falling behind, pursue their dreams, and motivate them throughout the school year to stay focused on their goals.
