Eddie Cortes is a youth speaker with an uncanny ability to engage students with compelling storytelling. His entertaining, yet thought-provoking story of tragedy and triumph, delivered with humor and honesty, challenges teenagers to take responsibility for their choices, discover their identity, and live with purpose.
From Hip-Hop Artist to Student Pastor, Eddie has spent the last 20 years inspiring young people to fulfill their potential. When Eddie is not speaking, he’s making memories with his bride, Darlene, and daughter, Lyilah.
“Passionate, relatable, powerful. Great speaker and a great message.”
“Eddie is a gifted and enthusiastic communicator with superb presentation skills.”
