Mikhail A. Scott

Legislative Aide to the Florida House Minority Leader, Representative Kionne L. McGhee

What do you do and why?

As the old adage goes, “What we do is a reflection of who we are”. I have the honor of serving as the Legislative Aide to the Florida House Minority Leader, Representative Kionne L. McGhee, where we work diligently to advocate for the interest and well-being of all Floridians.

My involvement in political and governmental affairs stems from a deeper understanding of how important civic engagement is in ensuring that communities across the state have a voice and seat at the table. We have all witnessed the consequences of disinvolvement in the political process however, many people in our communities, state and country are not being reached effectively and provided with the information, resources, and skills to address the issues that matter to them most.

My focus is to educate constituents on the importance of being involved in government, whether it be grassroots organizing or advocating for policy changes. When everyone does their part in this process, I believe the government will work for us all.

What change would you like to enact in the world?

We live in a world of continual distractions and misinformation. Often times there is more of a focus on the material and not so much on the organic/important elements of life. With that preface, my focus of change would be within different sectors of government here and abroad.

My plan is to enact a system that will identify the true cause and effect of political and governmental decision-making. I believe that more people would be willing to stand together to confront many of the injustices that exist given the “real” information and how it affects them personally, as well as the world around them.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I swear I’m not a rapper…However, since childhood, I’ve grown up with a love for music. I recall rummaging through my father’s collection of 45s (aka vinyl records) and playing some of the greats like Michael Jackson, Prince, and Earth Wind & Fire to name of few. My love for music has since evolved into a hobby of writing my own verses/poems, as well as the occasional freestyle sypher when the right beat speak to my inner creative.

Why did you join IVY?

I was impressed with the organization’s vision of continued learning throughout all aspects of the human experience. I enjoy learning from experts in areas that I’m not familiar with, as it broadens my perspective and provides me with a greater appreciation for the knowledge and intellectual capital of those around me.

What has been your most memorable IVY Experience?

First impressions are everything and my first IVY new membership social at Lobster Bar Sea Grille confirmed that IVY knows how to put together entertaining events with amazing people.
