Whether he’s entertaining others or speaking to large crowds, Miles’s own journey to excellence has been fueled with an unrelenting passion for empowering others.

Hustle and Soul Magazine got an exclusive interview with Miles.

Please tell us about your mentorship in underprivileged neighborhoods?

Miles: After college, I moved back to Chicago and started mentoring young football players that lead me to start a non-profit helping young underprivileged children learn about how living a healthy lifestyle translates to being successful. Introducing them to yoga and meditation, I’ve been trying to take a different approach to teach social-emotional intelligence.

In what other ways do you use your platform to inspire others?

Miles: When first starting out in the entertainment industry it was a goal of mine to use my platform to help inspire others to follow their dreams. Then I realized that people aren’t even aware of their dreams, so I started a non-profit called “The Ticket Out” dedicated to introducing children to their passions.

What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?

Miles: I like that I’ve tapped into what brings me fulfillment, if I wasn’t getting paid for the work that I do, I think I’d still be doing it.

What are some obstacles you overcame that made you the person you are today?

Miles: One of the biggest obstacles I’ve faced was finding my passion for acting while letting go of my love for football. I kept chasing a football dream I had when God kept opening up doors for me in the acting realm. At first, I completely ignored the signs, then I got cast for Chicago Fire and the name of the episode was “God Has Spoken”. I haven’t looked back since.

What do you think your sole purpose in life is?

Miles: My sole purpose in life is to share my experiences and to shorten the learning curve for all the people coming after me in all the fields that I’ve put in my 10,000 hours doing.

What is the best project you have ever worked on and why?

Miles: Each project is very special to me in its own way. It was really exciting to be filming “The Quad” at Morehouse the actual college that I attended. Filming “Insecure” was just as special because I booked it my fifth day in LA and I had been following Issa’s career since Awkward Black Girl. My movie that’s streaming right now on all platforms “Dutch” was special because I got to share the screen with “Lance Gross” who I’ve been watching for a long time.

What is a quote that you live by?

Miles: “To thine own self be true”

What advice would you have for others who would like to follow your career path?

Miles: The best advice is to put in the work, there is no easy way to true success, figure out what you want to do, and work towards that goal day in and day out.
