BusinessWeek says AREL MOODIE “teaches young people that anything is possible.” Essence Magazine said that “Arel Moodie should be the poster boy for rags-to-riches stories…He made it to college and is now America’s Top Young Speaker.” USA Today recognized Arel Moode as a Top Generation Y
Arel is the bestselling author of Your Starting Point for Student Success, a book not about helping students go to college, but more importantly helping students successfully go THROUGH college to truly succeed in school and in life.
Arel grew up on welfare in the projects of Brooklyn, NY where he witnessed those around him being murdered and imprisoned. Being picked on, beaten up, and robbed at knifepoint were typical, harsh experiences he now credits as the force behind his success. Seeing college as his “way out”, Arel took advantage of his college opportunity to the fullest. He started his first successful internet company while in college, and served as president of four different student organizations. Arel’s college awarded him the “Albert Tillman Award”, naming him “The Most Outstanding Graduating Senior”.
Now, as a professional speaker and co-owner of The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour, Arel has spoken to
over 65,000 students in 39 states and two countries by his 26th birthday. Arel is named one of the country’s Top Generation Y Leaders in the book Millennial Leaders as well as being featured in the #1 NY Times Bestselling book who’s got your back by Keith Ferrazzi (also author Never Eat Alone). In his spare time, Arel likes to dance and has performed with the Grammy Award winning R&B group 112. He also loves his pug and high-fives.
