At the young age of 25, Shalom Stewart has proven his experience as a mentor and public speaker, where he uses his talents to encourage and empower individuals, enriching their lives. A south Philadelphia native, Stewart graduated from Cheyney University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. During his time at Cheyney, he served as a proud member of the Beta Rho Chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. His fraternity membership helped him find his personal best self as he refined his skills in leadership, mentoring, and mental health. Later he also received his certification in mental health first aid, which provides him with a deep understanding of current mental health issues. This understanding enables him to help people suffering from depression, anxiety, psychosis, and substance abuse.

Shalom Stewart is the owner and founder of his own personal development company, Ideal Man Productions™ (IMP). He also developed the COPE Personal Development Enrichment Model and the Perseverance Mentoring Program. IMP’s mission is to equip people with the power they need to enthusiastically strive for excellence. Stewart’s programs are extensions of and expressions of his own desire to enrich people’s lives and expressions of his view that everyone should search for, strive for, and find their best selves in all avenues of life.

Stewart recently became a self-published author with his release of the book Remember the Line: Ideology for Achieving Self-Actualization in God, which he intends to have serve as a constructive conscious reminder to maintain focus and awareness of individual and collaborative identity in modern society.

Remember the Line presents its content to readers as philosophical views for enrichment of people regardless of religion or lack thereof. It aims to provoke thought and revolutionize the mindset of the reader through self-realization that one’s identity is beyond society’s definition of potential and character.

Remember the Line is available as an e-book for Amazon Kindle for $4.99 and paperback copies can be purchased directly through Ideal Man Productions™ for $12.00 each.
