Our History 

Think Make Live started off as a twenty minute power point (prez.com) presentation on March 4, 2015 for a senior humanities class at The Ohio State University. During the presentation, Terry discussed how he thought of a change and what were some the actions that he made to change and how is he living a changed life. He explained the details of the challenges and barriers that he had to personally overcome during the transition of him changing his lifestyle.

A few months later, Terry transferred the twenty minute power point into innovative workshops and programs. He knew that everyone’s Think Make Live story is not the same as his because every one doesn’t face the exact same challenges and barriers in life. He created Think Make Live presentations to help other people identify thier daily challenges and help them create innovative solutions. Terry designed the organization to connect opportunity youth to employment resources and community engagement opportunities. He also developed the organization to provide innovative social justice consulting for companies and non-profit organizations.
