Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Michel grew up amid the terror of
the Great War of Africa. Much of Michel's childhood was ravaged by the death
and decay of a war that claimed the lives of 3.8 million people, his father
included. Forced to leave his home as a refugee at the age of 11, Michel has
since traveled to many African countries, witnessing firsthand the problems
facing the developing world, but also the beauty of the communities and
people who live there. Today, Michel is an accomplished motivational
speaker, addressing audiences across North America. Michel leaves audiences
with a new perspective on life, a sense of hope through social
responsibility, and a desire for change.
