From Illegal Alien to American Express VP

ORLANDO, Fla., Mar 05, 2018 ( via COMTEX) — Rolf Harms always dreamed of exploring the world. At just fifteen years old, he began a career at sea. Four years later, he jumped ship in the U.S. and began a life of a struggling illegal alien in Brooklyn, N.Y.

In “Who Am I?: My Story and Philosophies,” Rolf Harms shares his autobiographical story of going from a teenager, trying to survive in an unfamiliar country, to a V.P. with American Express, being paid to travel the world.

“I was a farm boy from Germany,” Harms said, “when I left to seek my fortune. I went from being an illegal alien in the U.S., hiding out in plain sight in Brooklyn, to being part of the credit card business, as it developed into a multi-billion-dollar industry that left an indelible impact on our society.”

In addition to his exceptional personal story and career, Harms also shares his philosophical views he has developed, from his unique perspective and journey.

“The fact is,” Harms said, “we are mentally different, unique from one another, because everything which has influenced our lives has been unique and different from others. We can learn from one another and from sharing our stories.”
