About me

Danyal Diallo is only 17 years old and is a strong fighter against excuses and an even stronger advocate for social change.

Coming to Australia, Danyal found it hard to get along, he always felt this sense of displacement- living in a new country. He discovered, however, the concept of ‘’home’ is subjective”. Born in Sudan, Danyal sustained a hip injury when he was three after being pushed off a building. Every step he takes hurts. He uses that pain to remind him what he wants in life, which is certainly not to work for someone else.

In 2018, as a 16-year-old Danyal launched his own business Gymshopen, an online business selling gym equipment and accessories for both men and women. When asked what is special about Gymshopen Danyal’s answer is succinct and immediate – “The story behind it“ he says.

For Danyal the things that normally hold people back – race, youth, disability- spur him on. He teaches others that success is a choice and it’s always on the table. It’s up to you to grab it. This is highlighted in his TEDx presentation “Breaking the Stereotypes” Danyal is a youth leader still studying while working with his local Casey Council.

As a social entrepreneur, he is also assisting Destiny Rescue Australia to help get kids out of sex slavery in Eastern Asia. He believes that ‘There is nothing greater than the chance to have a chance at something’.

Danyal’s presentations are ideally suited for those who want to create change in their lives sharing his insight in philosophy, ethics, mindset, and leadership by leading by example. A true inspiration at such a young age, Danyal Diallo is not going to let anything get in the way of what he wants to achieve.
