Hello, I'm Steele
Detroit, Born and Raised
Steele P. Hughes is a native Detroiter with a fervent love for the people of this great city. As a dual citizen, he spent most of his childhood between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario. Steele is a proud product of Detroit Public Schools, graduating from Martin Luther King Jr. High School in 2007.
His passion for sports led him to participate in various youth sports leagues as a teen and young adult, which helped him to hone his leadership skills on the gridiron.
Steele’s hard work and determination would earn him a football scholarship to Northwood University, where he graduated in 2011 with three degrees: Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts in Sports, Entertainment, Promotion and Management, and Bachelor of Arts in Creative Fashion. Steele’s commitment to his city is evident in the continuous community work he does day in and day out. He understands that better opportunities and resources for the people of the city will create an even better Detroit.
While employed by Quicken Loans, he worked on a multitude of projects ranging from helping to create the current recruiting/hiring process that is used to onboard new team members and the procedure for the annual team member bonus compensation platform. Also, he was instrumental in building and revitalizing a healthy work life balance for the Mortgage Bankers of the organization. He created an initiative that brought a partnership between the Detroit Public Schools and Quicken Loans. The mentorship program is known as Studio Q. However, his notable accomplishment at Quicken Loans was helping to create a team member focused program known as Ignite, in order to facilitate the heightened potential and hidden gift of team members through vulnerable and transparent dialogue.
Steele is a member of the Detroit Branch of the NAACP and acts as a Co-Advisor for their Youth Council and ACT- SO (Afro-American; academic, cultural, technological, and Special Olympics). Steele remains engaged within the community as it pertains to GED training, skill/workforce, and trade programs. He is committed to improving the daily lives, opportunities and education of our youth in and around the city of Detroit.
It's not who's right, it's what's Right.
"My mission is to increase civic engagement, re-establish trade/career development in schools, create better police training and accountability, promote environmental awareness, enforce the importance of education, and create a space for conversations about social issues in order to facilitate genuine change within our community."
