Who is your mentor?
My father, first and foremost is truly my mentor. Born in Africa, immigrated to Canada during the Revolution in the early 70’s and followed his dreams in making of Abasa Optical and its many locations located throughout the Lower Mainland. My father, Abdeali Kamrudin has been my inspiration in my success and without his influence and teachings I could not have done it as well. He has taught me to believe that whatever you set your mind to you can achieve with hard work, commitment and passion.
Why do you do what you do?
I get to meet so many people and in turn make many friends along with enjoying the experience of helping people achieve better vision and better eye health.
