Michael Phillips


Michael Phillips is a Social Entrepreneur, Education Advocate, Purpose Agent, and Faith Leader creating positive change in developing social impact initiatives to solve community-based and systemic problems.

His story is the epitome of the necessity of advocacy, resources, and opportunities, for young, underprivileged students. After losing a parent, getting in a life-threatening car accident, and having his college scholarship revoked, he turned to sell drugs to make ends meet. After his house was raided and he was arrested, a judge gave him the opportunity to go to college rather than complete his 30-year sentence in prison if found guilty. He unhesitatingly chose to go to college, which completely turned his life around.
