Michael Adrian "Mike"

Michael, who goes by Mike, grew up in Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines. Mike is the second of four siblings and spends his fair share of time on the busy streets of Cebu, selling drawings and other trinkets to earn an income. Mike’s parents both work as security guards, and while their pay has been enough to provide for the family’s basic needs, it hasn’t been able to offer much more. Paying for college was definitely out of the question.

Now as a Developing Global Leader, Mike is studying mechanical engineering at Cebu Technical University and hopes to follow in the footsteps of his uncle, who modeled hard work and success in the field for his young nephew. Mike says, “When I first looked into mechanical engineering, I was afraid that I may not be qualified because of my limited knowledge of math. I passed my entrance exam, however, and became more hopeful. Now, my dream for the future is to have my own mechanical shop to support my younger siblings in their education and to also help support my Young Life family reach out to more kids.”
