Leadership belongs to those who can overcome the negative that appears from time to time. Overcoming both structural and mental hurdles also means surrounding yourself with a team that may at times be sharper but delegating to each members strength.
— Ian Conyers

Conyers was born in 1988 and raised in Detroit, Michigan. His father's family has lived there since his great-grandfather, John Conyers, Sr. moved there from rural Georgia as part of the Great Migration. His grandfather, William Conyers, was the younger brother of Congressman John Conyers, Jr., who retired in 2017 after setting a record for longevity in Congress.

Ian Conyers attended University of Detroit Jesuit High School. He graduated from Georgetown University, where he obtained a B.A. in government. While at Georgetown, Conyers played football and was a member of the fraternity Kappa Alpha Psi.

Conyers also earned a Master's degree in urban and regional planning from Georgetown. While in Washington, DC, he worked on the Anacostia waterfront redevelopment, a multi-year, public-private effort. Elected to represent Detroit in the State Senate at 27 in 2016.

Ian’s Blue Sky Goal:

I will feel that I have been successful when there is not a question about the opportunities of the next generation to achieve a happy healthy family life here in the city in around our region. Whichever platform allows the greatest exposure is where I want to be.
