Co-Founder & Chief Evangelist Officer at Student Success Agency
Featured on ABC, NBC, and Fox news affiliates, EJ Carrion is the #1 Amazon Best Selling author of Accelerate Your Success: How to Create a Future and Stand Out When College is Not Enough, which teaches students how to market and brand themselves when everyone is going to college and no one is hiring.
After writing his first book, Ignite Your Dreams, while in college at the University of Oklahoma, he became the CEO of Student Success Agency, an online agency that represents teens for college, career, and life. At SSA, teens can interact with their personal agents safely while improving on transitional skills to succeed in the real world.
Student Success Agency has serviced students all across the country and was awarded the Impact Award for most disruptive start-up in education. EJ recently represented Student Success Agency at the White House as special guest speaker on college success.
Like the students EJ serves, EJ grew up in low-income communities, a single parent home, and fell behind academically. After something huge happened in his life, he had the wake up call that changed his future. From there, he graduated from high school, became a Bill Gates Scholar, and the first person from his family to graduate from college.
In a short period of time, EJ has already spoken to over 75,000 people in 26 states and around the world while still in his mid 20s.
EJ's childhood dream job is to become a platinum rapper. He has shared the stage with platinum selling artists and had one of his raps used by ESPN.
