MOST ASKED QUESTION: The question I get the most often is probably about helmet sizing with customers that want to make sure they get the proper size -- a lot for pants and jackets too, but I feel there are more calls about helmets.
Hakim is a 25 year-old recent college business graduate from Temple University in Philadelphia. He is originally from France, and arrived in the U.S. in August, 2010 to pursue his double major in International Business and Marketing at the Fox School of Business.
With parents from Algeria, he was born and raised in France and has traveled all across Europe in over 13 countries. He prefers riding motorcycles in Europe, as there are many advantages over riding in the US (such as nicer roads). He speaks English and French, and mostly understands Spanish and Arabic.
Besides riding, Hakim likes really enjoys wrenching his own bikes and cars (German cars, mainly BMW), riding and driving fast, travelling, going out with friends, partying, French food, luxury goods (watches) and clothing, spending summer time in Saint-Tropez (France), going to New York City (for partying mainly), and last but not least, the USA!
He loves living the US and the culture that goes with it, as well as working for Revzilla, and will not trade his spot for anything in the world!
Favorite part of being on TeamZilla?: What I like most is being a part of is the level of interaction with everyone here, the company culture and the working environment. The best thing overall is that I work in the industry that I love (not retail, or online retail, but all the motorcycle related stuff), which is something that not many people can brag about. Ultimately, my goal is to make as much money as I can to pay off my student loans quickly and start investing my money wisely to become (at least) a millionaire before my 35th birthday! Dream BIG!
