Business Engagement Assistant
Mike joined Futures and Options in April 2018 as a Business Engagement Assistant. On the daily, he supports his team in the recruiting of business partners who are interested in hosting interns. As a former participant of the program from 2013, he realizes the importance and value F+O played in providing him with a solid foundation prior to college.
Mike earned his Bachelor's degree in Communications and Journalism from the State University at Albany, where he was also a contributing writer for Albany Student Press. Writing is another passion of Mike's—he created his own blog: "Lai-Turay's ¾ Court Press" in 2018 and continues to produce daily content in sports. His parents each worked for the New York City Department of Education, his dad as a retired principal and his mother as a college adviser for over 20 years. He looks to continue their legacy of helping youth maximize their highest potential while cementing his own path at Futures and Options.
