My name is Mike Kubus and currently in my final semester at Keystone College. I am about changing peoples lives for the best and helping them succeed in accomplishing their dreams. One day I plan on starting my own organization against bullying and speak across the states and around the world to be a voice for those who believe they don't have one and stand up against bullying.
I'm passionate about
I am passionate about helping others succeed in their goals. Growing up I was told I wouldn't make it in life, but thanks to my friends and families, I am living the dream I have always wanted.

You can talk to me about anything from bullying, succeeding in life, leadership styles, and always having a winning attitude.

I consider myself a good college athlete and someone who always tries to find a positive no matter the situation.
My TED story
I grew up in small town, in small house with my loving parents and sister. We didn't have much, but we managed with what we had. In high school I was the shy, quiet kid who sat in the back of the classroom and did what I was suppose to do. I had a hard time making friends, and at the age of 15 I almost took my life because I was told dirt was worth more than my life. I got a way from it all by running. Today I'm seven weeks away from being the first in my family to graduate from college. I'm looking forward to taking the next step and coaching the world on how they can live their dreams and to always make sure they never give up, no matter what others say. I'm also looking forward to starting my own foundation that helps prevent bullying. I want to travel the world and advocate against bullying and be a voice for those who believe they don't have one.
