Will Harvey, a product of the inner city with limited resources was raised in a single parent home which contributed to his passion of “making something out of nothing”. Blessed to have mentors that helped guide, empower, and challenge the odds stacked against him, Will set out to develop an organization for youth that promotes healthy social skills, strong interpersonal skills, self-worth, and confidence.
The Mansa Musa Project is named after Mansa Musa. Musa who is believed to have been the richest person in the world, even by today’s standards did not want just wealth and power but sought knowledge. With a similar desire, Will graduated from Booker T. Washington’s high school for Engineering Professions and went on to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management from Louisiana State University and a Master of Business Administration from Texas Woman’s University. Upon completion of college, Will’s dedication and determination afforded him the opportunity to play professional football which opened doors to his current successful entrepreneurship. He plans to utilize his knowledge, skills, healthy relationships, motivation, and drive to pour into the lives of the youth in the community.
