Technology is a force that turns scarcity into abundance.

I often discuss how exponential technologies like AI are positively disrupting entire industries and creating more abundance for humanity as a whole. 

But today, I want to talk about how technology has transformed one individual’s life for the better. 

I learned about the following story at my private Abundance360 CEO Summit back in March during a conversation with Sal Khan, Founder and CEO of Khan Academy, a nonprofit that provides free world-class education online to anyone, anywhere.

He told me about a young girl in Afghanistan named Sultana who used Khan Academy ALONE to educate herself and change the course of her life. 

I’ve reflected on this since our conversation and felt inspired to share it here… 

Sultana’s Story

Sultana grew up in Afghanistan, and when the Taliban took over her town, they forbade all the young girls from going to school. 

Khan Academy became her lifeline. 

She studied everything from elementary school math to algebra and trigonometry, eventually moving on to physics, chemistry and other subjects.

All from her home, using Khan Academy’s free online lessons and courses.

Here’s how Sultana later described the experience in a 2021 article in The Economist

“Armed with an iPad, the internet and a free education website called Khan Academy, I taught myself English. And philosophy. And math. And science. And history. I wanted to understand the world in every way possible, and my place in it. Solving math problems gave structure to the uncertain world I was living in, even if just in my head. I felt liberated when I first learned to make a graph of a linear equation. On the page, drawing a two-dimensional coordinate plane and graphing an equation, the world was in my control.”

Sultana then decided that she wanted to be a theoretical physicist in the US. So, she smuggled herself into Pakistan to take the SAT because the test wasn’t offered in Afghanistan… and she PASSED! 

Soon after, she was admitted to Arizona State University, graduating with honors!

Where’s Sultana now? 

She’s currently a member of the research faculty at Tufts University studying quantum computing.

Why This Matters

As I’ve often said, the world's most precious resource is the persistent and passionate human mind.

Even as the world changes rapidly around us, we should never forget that we are powerful beyond measure. 

Our tools can help us become more—and give more. For example, Khan Academy is developing an AI that personalizes every student’s education, creating the gold standard of tutoring.

With AI and other exponential tech supporting us, we can have many more Sultanas in the future.

NOTE: My year-round leadership program Abundance360 has partnered with Africarare—creators of Africa's first VR Metaverse—to offer select condensed Abundance360 Summit content to a broader audience. Our goal is to spread the impact of some of the most inspiring content from Abundance360, and to empower entrepreneurs all over the world to transform their mindsets and solve global challenges.

The experience is being presented as a Metaverse Space Adventure, and will be available June 26 - 30, 2023.

If you’re interested in Abundance360’s topics, this is a great opportunity to get a taste of the content. A VR headset is encouraged but not required.

Want to learn about how to increase your healthspan? And the top longevity-related investment opportunities available?

If yes, then consider joining me on my 2023 Platinum Longevity Trip.

I'm running two VIP trips I call my “Platinum Longevity Trip” covering top scientists, startups, labs, and CEOs in Cambridge, Boston, New Hampshire, and New York. I do the same trip twice for up to 40 participants: Aug. 16 - 20, 2023 or Sept. 27 - Oct. 1, 2023.

Each trip is a 5-Star/5-Day deep dive into the cutting-edge world of biotech/longevity and age-reversal.

You’ll meet with the top 50 scientists, CEOs, and labs working on adding decades to your life. You will also learn about breakthroughs against a wide range of chronic diseases.

This year, some of the world-changing labs and faculty we’ll visit include: David Sinclair, PhD, Harvard Center for Biology of Aging Research; George Church, PhD, Harvard Wyss Institute; Dean Kamen, PhD, Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI); and Fountain Life, New York—just to name a few.

Both trips are identical (capped at 40 participants per trip), during which I spend all 5 days with you as your private guide and provocateur. Through this personalized, action-packed program, my mission is to give you exclusive, first-hand exposure to the major players, scientists, companies, and treatments in the longevity and vitality arena.

Here's what you get: All your questions answered. First-hand insights and early access to diagnostics, therapeutics, and investment opportunities.

If you want to learn more about the Platinum Longevity Trip, go hereindicate your interest and we'll set up an interview!

I discuss topics just like this on my podcast. Here’s a conversation I recently enjoyed:

A Statement From Peter:

My goal with this newsletter is to inspire leaders to play BIG. If that’s you, thank you for being here. If you know someone who can use this, please share it. Together, we can uplift humanity.
