South Texas School Motivational Youth SpeakerAre you a school in the Valley in South Texas looking for a way to motivate your students? Over the last couple of years Fabian Ramirez has had the honor of speaking at schools and conferences in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) and has been a hit every time. Having family in Harlingen, TX growing up has helped him relate to the students in that area.

Since Fabian is Hispanic, he relates really well to other Hispanic students. The Valley is 81 percent Hispanic and young, just like Fabian. The region’s educational level is below the state average so when Fabian comes to speak to those students, he gets to share about how he struggled his way to receive a Masters degree. Finishing graduate school is one of the best thing he could’ve done for his own people group. The reason is because now students can look at him and say, he looks like me, acts like me, and he has a Masters. If he can do it, then so can I.

Fabian was the keynote speaker for a youth conference being held the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council in the City of McAllen, TX. He was able to speak to teens from McAllen High Schools about school bullying and drug prevention. He used humor to capture their attention and then gave them a heart-to-heart talk about making a difference for their families. He mentioned how they can take their family to another level just by graduating high school. He talked about his college experience and how hard it was. The things that are the hardest, are usually worth fighting for, he said. Students and adults who were in attendance walked away motivated and ready to perform well in school and as they pursue higher education.

Watch him connect with Hispanic high school students in this demo video:

    I am interested in getting more info about having Fabian speak about Anti-Bullying issues at our Raymondville Pittman Elementary PTO meeting. The meeting is scheduled for October 6th at 6pm. We try to keep our meeting to an hour so a 15-20 minute presentation would be good. If he doesn’t do PTO meetings, just let me know. Thanks so much!
