Alumni Spotlight: Nicholas Ravid '17

In this month’s issue of Forbes Magazine, Nicholas Ravid ‘17 was featured in their Business Advice from Entrepreneurs.  We had a chance to catch up with Nicholas to see what he has been up to since he graduated from Catholic Central. 

Nicholas is a Digital Social Marketing Consultant, specializing in growing large audiences on Instagram. Nick leverages his audiences of millions of Instagram users to run large-scale marketing campaigns for many different types of companies, individuals & advertising agencies. Nick has gained over 7 Million followers across his network on Instagram, and has produced billions of impressions for his clients.

Nick has an impressive clientele, recently advertising for former presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, NBA all-star Dwight Howard, TikTok (iTunes’ top ranked social media platform), Fashion Nova & many more. 

Nick began building Instagram pages when he was a sophomore at CC. Now in his junior year at the University of Michigan, Nick has transformed his hobby into his career. “Back in high school, nobody really took what I was doing seriously. Social media wasn’t what it is now. I always knew social media was the future of marketing, and that there would eventually be opportunities to really build something.” 

“I’m very grateful to be alive during a time where everything that I create, and work on is accessible at my fingertips. I take a lot of passion in my work, and I encourage all CC students to pursue a career related to something that they genuinely enjoy.”

Reflecting on his time at CC, Nicholas shared: “Catholic Central taught me how to work with great efficiency and resourcefulness, to hold myself to a high standard of morality, and to develop genuine, life-long bonds with others. The lessons I learned from the people and experiences I encountered at CC have had a direct affect on my success.”
“Teach Me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge” is the motto of the Basilian Fathers and the sacred mission of Catholic Central High School. For ninety years, the graduates of Catholic Central have made a positive impact locally, nationally, and around the world.
