Michael Platt

MICHAEL PLATT is a teen baker, social entrepreneur and food-justice advocate. He has been baking since he was nine years old but has been interested in racial inequality since he learned about the historic March on Washington at the age of six. Michael began to ask questions about people being mistreated because of the colour of their skin, and so set up a baking business in Maryland, called Michael's Desserts, with a one-for-one model. Michael appeared as one of the best kid bakers in the country in season 4 of Kids Baking Championship on Food Network and has been featured in the Capital Gazette, WUSA9 news, CBS news, PGCTV news, Ted Talks, Good Morning America, CNN, Washington Post, People.com, Guideposts, the Rachael Ray Show, and more.

Michael is the author of 'Recipes for Change'.
