Cedric Brown

Author . Motivational Speaker. Empowerment Coach

Cedric "Make It Happen" Brown is the Founder & CEO of U Can SOAR, a motivational empowerment service. He is the author of "Plug Into Your Zone" and creator of the motivational skit "Don't Let It Be You."  However, Cedric's story wasn’t always a successful one. At the age of 13, Cedric was hospitalized and diagnosed with a bipolar disorder and would eventually succumb to the negativity surrounding him in his neighborhood. At the age of 20, he was sentenced to 15 years to life at maximum security prison. There he would find himself being challenged daily and it would be in those moments that he would decide to be more than just a thug on the street. Cedric wanted to change his life and his poverty mentality. He understands what it takes to overcome roadblocks and how to get from where you are to where you want to be in life. Regardless of his rough upbringing and his lengthy prison sentence, Cedric's incredible story is one of desire, action, and perseverance.
