Koran Bolden is a national youth motivational speaker, millennial life coach & entrepreneur, who advocates for students to graduate from school by using the arts, entrepreneurship and technology as outlets to make healthy life choices. Bolden is the recent recipient of the Verizon Wireless Everyday Hero Award, Mercedes Benz Rising Star, Cadillac City Shapers Salute, and being tapped by Walgreens as the spokesperson for their regional Walgreens expressions challenge. His most recent honor was being featured on the GAP Inc website for his impact on youth leadership and entrepreneurship in which he was later asked to deliver a keynote speech on stage for the Banana Republic Conference at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. After the County Executive's office heard of Bolden's GAP Inc story, they officially declared March 21, 2014 as Koran Bolden Day in Saint Louis County. In 2015, Bolden was appointed by Big Brothers Big Sister's CEO to be the founding member of the Young Leaders Alliance that will focus on community advocacy and social change. This amazing millennial driven initiative was created to activate, cultivate and propel the next generation of millennial social entrepreneurs.
