Let’s help your students build resilience, develop positive self-worth, and transform obstacles into opportunities.

Eddie Cortes believes that a student’s self-worth directly impacts their academic achievement, as well as their social, emotional, and mental health. In fact, young people with a positive self-worth are more resilient, and more likely to overcome disappointment, failure, and obstacles. Additionally, they have richer relationships and achieve better academic results.

In his fun, high energy, and interactive presentation called “I’M POSSIBLE,” Eddie will help students realize that they are not defined by their limitations. Eddie uses humor, thought-provoking stories, and spoken word to show elementary and middle school students that they are braver than they believe, stronger than they seem, and smarter than they think.

Eddie will empower students to build resilience, develop positive self-worth, and transform obstacles into opportunities.

“Eddie is a gifted and enthusiastic communicator with superb presentation skills.”

Michelle Brooks, High School Teacher

Eddie will help students to…

✔️ Nurture a positive self-view that will boost their self-esteem
✔️ Focus on what they can do, rather than what they can not
✔️ Adopt a growth mindset and discover the opportunities in their obstacles
