What do leadership, a first-rate scholar, and the American Dream all have in common? A young man from Brazil by the name of Pedro de Abreu.

Pedro was born in poverty in Brazil and moved to the United States to achieve his dreams when he was 15 years old, in 10th grade, without knowing a word of English. He, however, managed to take college Advanced Placement classes one year after his arrival and he passed all of his exams.

Upon graduating from high-school, he and two of his friends moved to North Hollywood, CA, to start a multi-media company by the name of Moofaces. With no more than $200 in their pockets, they managed to grow the company, and by the time Pedro left California, he and his partners had closed partnerships with corporations like MTV Networks, Crunk! Energy Drink and many others. Upon returning to South Carolina, he started the Check Mate Foundation, a foundation that teaches chess and leadership to children in Elementary Schools across South Carolina.

Pedro is also a student at the University of South Carolina, where he holds a 4.0GPA. He is also a part of the All-USA Community College Academic Team and was named South Carolinas 2011 Coca-Cola New Century Scholar, one of the highest academic honors bestowed upon students in the country. He was featured in the April 11th issue of the USA Today. Pedro has also contributed columns for the Hollywood Weekly magazine, in CA. His first book is due to be published in August, 2011.

Pedro is a speaker who can truly tell students and entrepreneurs that their best is yet to come because he has been there, done it and still does it. His message combines humorous and inspirational anecdotes from his life that leaves audiences thinking in unison: If he can do it, I can do it too! He has motivated countless people from all walks of life, and cant wait to uplift your audience at your next event!
