About Me

/Who Am I




What’s Your Story?

First-generation Nigerian American, speaker, philanthropist and social entrepreneur, Nosa Eguae lives a life of impact, and service. Born into a family of migrant scholars, Nosa grew up knowing the power of education, community, and leadership through sport. Those gifts allowed him to build relationships that nurtured his core talents, and coupled with an unwavering work ethic—success quickly followed in sport and in the classroom. After graduating high school in Dallas, TX Nosa had over 40+ Scholarship offers to continue his education and play football collegiately. His collegiate pursuits planted him at Auburn University where Nosa remains the only athlete in the school’s storied history to start in two National Championship games. Through both tragedy and triumph, Nosa learned the power of perseverance at Auburn, Post-college, Nosa played professionally for the Atlanta Falcons before being cut on the hit HBO show Hard Knocks. After his playing career ended Nosa embarked on an 8-month journey of setbacks, failure, and overcoming that led to a purpose-filled awakening.

“When reality set in that football was over, I had to pick myself up off the ground, I had to look at myself in the mirror; look deep…way past the surface, and in the midst of my identity crisis, I came to the life-giving reality that I was enough—I had everything in me to not just make the transition successfully from sport, but to change the world, through my gifts, my talents, and my story.” 

Nosa’s journey post sport led him to the Medical Field; where he made headlines as an award-winning team member at the Chicago based healthcare giant Baxter International, where Nosa currently serves as Business Manager in the company’s Advanced Surgery division. Nosa shares his story of overcoming, hard work, and purpose-filled awakening to young men and women across the country as a Keynote Speaker. His work as a change-agent has led to philanthropic works throughout the city of Chicago, and beyond.  As co-founder and Managing Partner of the Prolific Company he wears the hat of a social entrepreneur; working with a team of former athletes, to bring forth holistic solutions for athletes transitioning from sport. The heart behind his work is simple; he wants to eradicate the Disease of Low Expectation in athletes and young people.




 “For the rest of my days, I will remain committed to serving a generation of people. Whether it’s young men and women on the south or west sides of Chicago or an athlete that struggles to embrace an amazing skillset that adds value to the world outside of sport. Every day I will set the example and champion the work to empower, uplift, and impact the masses.”

“Nosa is a powerful, thoughtful and inspiring speaker who creates a genuine connection with his audience.”
Robert A. DiMeo DiMeo Schneider & Associates, Chief Executive Officer

Asking Nosa Eguae to lead a workshop at our annual CPS Young
Men of Color Summit turned out to be the highlight of the event. His
sessions were not only the most popular with students but received
overwhelming praise from the staff, as well. In fact, his likeness was
featured in our event literature. Nosa’s ability to engage with our
students is an immense talent not often seen. Students not only found
him relatable but also both encouraging and empowering. His humility
and vulnerability endeared him to our young men, allowing them to
see a version of manhood that may have previously felt foreign. In
addition to the glowing written evaluations, the line of young men
exiting the room waiting to shake Nosa’s hand served as complete
affirmation that we were spot on selecting him as a speaker.
