Life Without Borders: Michael Graziano #003

I first met Michael Graziano at Flight Centre Canada's head office in Vancouver, BC (my former place of employment). For three years we sponsored his show, Global Degree, simply because it was one of the most inspiring and entertaining initiatives we'd seen in a long time.

The concept of the show is both simple and outrageously ambitious - Michael is on a mission to travel to every country in the world. His drive to achieve this goal is rooted in his desire to improve the post-secondary education experience, hence the name Global Degree.

He has already made his way to 106 countries, capturing the excitement, and most importantly, the enlightenment that travel brings each of its pursuers. I've watched him tear down walls of ignorance, find friends in the unlikeliest of places and fearlessly cross borders some of us wouldn't even dream of approaching.

If that isn't impressive enough, Global Degree has managed to build a social media community of more than 1,000,000 followers, and their videos have a collective view count of over 70 million.

 

He is also no stranger to public speaking, with international engagements under his belt that include the impressive Hostelworld Conference held in Dublin, Ireland in 2015.
His ability to unforgivingly forgo society's standards for an acceptable career path is resulting in an upgrade that our outdated education system desperately needs. His mission is not only share-worthy, it's revolutionary for today's youth.

The influence of Global Degree extends far outside the realm of social media. The fact that you can now earn your post-secondary education while traveling to every country in the world is something that most would have written off as an impossible feat. Don't believe me? I'll leave it to Michael to explain...

As promised, here are the books Michael mentioned:
Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
