What do "they say" about Michael Sykes?

Michael Sykes In Africa

"He's got stories!"

People tell me I have a story for everything, and they seem to be right. I have traveled to the continent of Africa and to Mexico for humanitarian work, to Costa Rica and Hawaii for surfing, and to a whole bunch of other places just for fun. This has given me much to talk about, maybe too much.

"He's a worker!"

I started working when I was 7 years old delivering papers and have had many different jobs since then. Currently I tend bar part time at a Mediterranean restaurant, and I am a journalism and political science student at the University of Florida.

"He loves to eat!"

Food has a unique way of bringing people together, and I like that. Everyone has to eat something, and if I can eat with them, it will give me the chance to get to know a little about them.
