Youth Motivational Speaker
School Assembly Speaker Eddie Cortes
Empowering Students to Build Resilience and Chase their Dreams
“Eddie is a gifted and enthusiastic communicator with superb presentation skills.”
For the past 20 years, school assembly speaker Eddie Cortes has been living out his life-long mission to empower students to build resilience, positive self-worth, and confidence to chase their dreams. This mission has become personal for Eddie, as it stems from his own life-altering experience.
As a middle schooler, Eddie’s dream of playing Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees came crashing down when his cousin told him he wasn’t “big enough, fast enough, or talented enough” to make it. This moment crushed Eddie’s self-worth, and he stopped believing in himself, which affected his grades, relationships, and choices. He stopped dreaming.
Eddie now wants to help students understand that they are “braver than they believe, stronger than they seem, smarter than they think”, and worthy of their dreams. He’s had the privilege to partner with public and private schools across the United States to share his message in an interactive school assembly, IM.POSSIBLE,
which helps students nurture a positive self-view and build resilience to overcome disappointment, failure, and obstacles.
Captivating Students with Humor and Storytelling
Eddie’s enthusiasm and passion for his mission are contagious. His ability to captivate elementary and middle school students with humor and storytelling draws them to the edge of their seats. His fun and thought-provoking approach challenges every student to do hard things and chase their dreams.
Eddie has a bachelor’s degree in leadership, loves Chinese food, and is a CrossFit enthusiast. When he’s not speaking, Eddie is making memories with his bride and daughter.
