NAIROBI CITY, GREENSPAN, KENYA, December 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- During the ceremony held on Saturday, November 20th, 2021, Dr. Michael Freeland from the U.S. was awarded the most prestigious award named after Dr. Astell Collins of Guyana. The event was dubbed "Live Your BEST Life Nairobi" which was designed to bring insight and transformation to the attendees.

Dr. Michael was honored for his global initiative "Developing Your Mental Real-Of-State," which seeks to add value and understanding to the lives of others around the world, thereby creating better communities.

Freeland is the host of the annual "Developing Your Mental Real-Of-State" conference centered around personal growth and development.

Having lived with Milroy's disease his whole life, Dr. Freeland shares his experience and lessons he's learned to provide move-ahead strategies for others.

Dr. Freeland was recently awarded the rare yet very high honor of receiving a military service coin from retired U.S. Colonel Margaret Fournier at his "Developing Your Mental Real-Of-State" conference held in the United States. Margaret Fournier recognized Dr. Freeland for his work and commitment to helping others overcome life's challenges and setbacks. This coin was previously awarded to then President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden during their participation in the 57th Inaugural Ceremonies.

Dr. Michael has also authored the book entitled "Free Your Land – Developing Your Mental Real-Of-State" which has been made available in the libraries of U.S. prisons and juvenile detention facilities in the states of Kansas and Missouri. Colonel Margaret said the book is a much-needed tool for mental resilience and will serve as a valuable resource to inmates wanting to make lasting change. Additionally, Freeland received an Honorary Doctorate from United Graduate College and Seminary International (UGCSI) for his work.
