Super Bowl Champion, Author and Founder/CEO of Share the Magic Foundation
Malcolm Mitchell, is a native of Valdosta, Georgia. As a high school senior, he was an Under Armour All-American and went on to finish in the top ten all-time receivers during his playing career at the University of Georgia (UGA). During his freshman year in college, Malcolm developed a love of reading. Initially, reading was a challenge, however, through perseverance, books became an avenue for expanding his curiosity, creativity and learning. In 2015, Malcolm authored and published a children’s book, “The Magician’s Hat” and created a youth literacy initiative called Read with Malcolm. After graduating from UGA with a degree in Communications in 2016, Malcolm was drafted by the New England Patriots, becoming a Super Bowl Champion in February 2017. During his time in the NFL, he established a 501c3 organization, Share the Magic Foundation, with a sole purpose: to transform children’s lives through literacy. Share the Magic Foundation’s mission is to inspire young people to read by bringing book ownership to students in Title I schools and under-resourced communities. Among Malcolm’s numerous awards and accomplishments both on and off the field, he considers discovering a love of reading one of his greatest achievements.
