Urban Pitch: You’ve had a busy year competing in freestyle, futsal, and panna tournaments—what else have you been working on lately?
Zeem Ahmad: Currently, I am focusing on my product, “KeepItStreet.” I’ve been going from place to place performing and promoting my product at local events. I just got back from Pulau Langkawi to clear things off my mind, with the help of some freestyle time.
