Welcome to Assertiveu™. We’re a proudly boot-strapped labor of love – a digital media and EdTech startup on a mission to help reinvent the creative writing program for today’s globalized multicultural age and digital economy.
Since late 2015, we've been working hard to bring together an aspirational community of writers, artists, activists, journalists, and cultural disruptors – made up of students and mentors – who believe in the power of the written word to change our world.
Whether expressed through memoir, graphic novels, slam poetry, standup comedy, or screenplays – in the words of Toni Morrison, we seek to be the encouragers and evokers of storytelling that is “assertive, eloquent and political, but not devoid of love."
#BlackLivesMatter. #MuslimID. #LoveWins. We believe the time has come for alternative education platforms that embrace our diversity and equip us to thrive in today's exploding era of best-selling ebooks and social media instigators gone mainstream.
Everything we do is devoted to amplifying the voices of a new generation of multicultural storytellers standing up for pluralism, and challenging stories as usual.
Until that happens, you’re stuck with us. Get on the waitlist and be first to find out when we launch.
Assertiveu™ is founded and led by Sudanese-born multicultural writer and entrepreneur Amir A. Nasr, and is based out of one of the most diverse cities in the world: Vancouver, Canada.
