Malik Amir Mix, 23, is a rising mogul and a fighter. The Michigan State University graduate discovered that in January 2018, he could not accept his 300+ lbs. life and began his very own health journey while launching a nonprofit organization, Our Young Leaders Foundation. This journey, both transformational and memorable, caught the eyes of thousands. Most notably, they listed him on the Forbes Under 30 list. The first-generation college graduate constantly reminds people about body positivity as a means of confidence. Now, weighing almost 100 lbs lighter, Mix gives people "medicine" for those feeling as though the world is judging them because of the way they look on the outside: laughter, love, and light.
