Meet Nay Cook


Before Nahshon Cook-Nelson was a social entrepreneur, poet and speaker, he had his share of obstacles to overcome. From growing up in a single-parent household, to being severely bullied for his race and weight in school. Nahshon's story is an example of how anyone can overcome obstacles and use their struggles as progress. Fast forward a few short years and Nahshon is on a path that he never imagined in high school. Helping organizations & people alike find direction, build confidence, and increase their success through interactive workshops & social media. Nahshon to date has worked with organizations in the United Kingdom, Canada, and right here in Grand Rapids, MI.
