Mike Austin is an inspiring young entrepreneur, proving to the world that an individual can make a difference. As an undergraduate student, Austin led the ‘Red Light’ SIFE project in Madagascar. The project reached over 600 people, illustrating that nothing is impossible. Austin encourages students to immerse themselves within the university community, outlining the benefits of academic communities.
The academic atmosphere is perfect for those making efforts for change and awareness. University environments are constructed to foster bright ideas and encourage the sharing and networking of such innovative thoughts. These opportunities to get involved also offer a space for individual growth and development. Many students feel as though they can’t make an impact on the world, but Austin’s story is an inspiring counterpoint to such a notion.
