Each month, we are recognizing ESAC students who are making a difference and making a future. This month, we have selected Mike Davis, our ESAC 2006 alumni. Mike came to ESAC through a little bit of luck. He was studying at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida when a friend who had paid for the program became ill and was not able to attend. His friend knew Mike had been to Prague and loved it and offered her spot in the program. After the ESAC program, Mike graduated with his MBA from Rollins College in 2009 and in 2013, Mike graduated from Washington and Lee University School of Law. In 2014, Mike opened his own law firm, Lawyer Mike D and in 2017 merged with a veteran attorney in Palm Coast, Florida to establish Eldredge and Davis, P.A. Mike has returned to Prague multiple times since ESAC as well and feels like Czechia is his home away from home. He has maintained a relationship with Kristine and David since the program as well as some of his fellow alums. The ESAC program gave Mike an opportunity to return to the place he loved, opened his eyes to new career opportunities, and gave him some valuable friendships. Mike recommends to everyone to take the chance and study abroad if possible - it is something you will never forget and will shape you in ways you can't even imagine. An added perk is the Budvar!
