Suhaib Rumi (born 11/22/88) is a Canadian Entrepreneur and Poet. Born in the UAE, with Pashtun roots, he moved to Toronto, Canada at a young age where he currently resides. He began writing poetry after his close friend’s passing in his early twenties, and continues to use it as a therapeutic outlet throughout the happenings of life. After publishing some of his works on Instagram in 2018, and noticing that many readers from all over the world found comfort and solace in his posts, he compiled his poetry and prose into his self-published book Emerald Companion.
Suhaib spent most of his teenage years apprenticing as a mason and a carpenter. At the age of 21, he started his own construction company from where he gradually expanded into e-commerce, giving him more time to do other things he loves.
When he isn’t working, reading or writing, he spends his time in nature, hiking and in meditation.
