Graphic Designer

Malachi-Amin Muhammad is a first year board member. He is currently in the 9th grade at Freedom Prep High School. He joined the board to develop and grow his gifts in sound engineering and believes that surrounding himself with talented and gifted people, who enjoy the arts, will help him to do that. His skills include music production, audio engineering, and theatre production. He wants to learn as much as he can about the science of the arts and appreciate everything that it entails. Through that he is hoping to develop his own skills so that he will be able to one day open his own production studio, where he would like to teach kids like himself how to improve their skills in music engineering. He brings energy and passion to the board and his favorite quote also speaks to his high ambitions: “Be the best, so that you can be THE BEST!”
