SCHOOL SPEAKER EDDIE CORTES YOUTH MOTIVATIONAL PROGRAM
I’M POSSIBLE: EMPOWERING STUDENTS TO BUILD RESILIENCY AND A POSITIVE SELF-WORTH
A student’s self-worth directly impacts their academic achievement, 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,” school speaker Eddie Cortes will help students realize that they are not defined by their limitations. He 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.
Students will learn 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
“I have had the privilege to hear Eddie Cortes present, teach, speak, lead and inspire over the last four years. His enthusiasm is contagious, particularly to our youth. He has a marvelous way of getting their attention at their level while raising them up to a higher level.”
Director, Christian Educators Association International
