Michael Benjamin was born in Inglewood, California. His Nigerian parents relocated to Riverside, California after senseless violence. He spent a majority of years there before attending UC San Diego and majoring in Chemical Engineering.
In college, he was the president of the the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) UCSD chapter. As president, he used his vision of initiating community outreach which led to multiple speaking engagements targeting the youth in the inner cities in San Diego. On June 2nd, 2017, he taught a few elementary classes about the importance of STEM and saw a passion in the words he was spewing, leading to the start of his motivational speaking career.
Today, Michael works in the state of Washington as a Chemical Engineer, while consulting clients on their student loan debt, speaking, and he just finished writing his first book, The Power of Yet, released on June 19th, 2019, a fictional story that discusses helpful principles he applied to pay off his $30,000 student loan debt in one year (go and buy it!)! Michael enjoys following God to maximize his spiritual strength, working out consistently to maintain his physical frame and meditating daily to maintain his mental acumen.
