The 26-year-old influencer wants to present people with a positive option, content that will encourage them instead of dampen their spirits. 

Motivated by the idea of encouraging people around the world with his message, Michael H. Forde released his first self-help book in December 2017 and later rebranded it in January 2020. The book titled Success Begins From Where You Are! was a phenomenal hit among people looking for helpful tips to create a better way of living.

He received his health science degree from Southern Adventist University after finishing high school at the age of 16. After completing his bachelor’s degree at the young age of 19, he went on to pursue his master’s degree and finished it at 22. At present, he is pursuing his doctoral degree. As a public health specialist, he has served in health communications at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health, under the leadership of Dr. Anthony Fauci, as a member of the NIAID Inquiry Response Team.

Currently, Michael H. Forde’s focus is on supporting mental health initiatives that are designed to help improve the quality of life of millions of people by promoting positivity, hope, and compassion. 

Michael H. Forde envisions himself becoming a leader in the public health sector in the next few years and also to be known someday as a forerunner when it comes to positive change. He wants to be remembered as someone who created effective systems that allowed people to grow emotionally and helped them become more aware of the importance of improving health-related behaviors. 

Where it concerns his writing, he looks forward to writing two more books after Success Begins From Where You Are! in the next five years. He intends to continue writing on self-improvement and self-worth and help motivate people both near and far.
