Ten Minutes with Michael Gist:
It is everything. The struggles and discrimination my grandparents went through, my mother and aunt went through just for me to get to the point I’m at today. My ancestors have a history of service in the military.
My strongest influence of who I am, and what I’ve become and where I’m growing to has been my experiences. Experiences in the US and worldwide through college, the military and business.
Working in foreign countries and abuse of my Freedom and rights by Government in the military.
Having used what my grandparents, mom, aunt, uncle and friends have taught me to grow into the person that I am today. College graduate, bachelor degree, 2 masters degrees, college athlete, Major in the Marine Corps and travel and experiences from more than 30 countries and 30 US States.
That I treated everyone like human beings and I always try to pass on what I’ve learned in a positive way. Though, I don’t want to run for public office because I’m not a politician, I am concerned because of the present times which are calling for real leadership and President Gist or Governor Gist would provide just that.
Maldives, Germany and Japan. Though I’ve never vacationed there I only worked. I also loved Albania
Anything on the Water and travel
I imagined it as being disciplined and responsible for opportunities worldwide-if you worked hard at it. My perception match how it was but, what I didn’t imagine is how corrupt, political and lacking of integrity senior leaders are.
Family, friends, to be alive, to be an American born into Freedom.
