Born and raised in the projects, Laura Rizo's life experiences relate to both youth and adults. Her messages on overcoming poverty, depression, alcoholism, an identity crisis, and a lack of self love reach the hearts of young minds. She connects to youth because of the experiences she lived and connects with adults because of her years as an educator and transparency of her life experiences.
As a School Counselor, Speaker, and Facilitator, Rizo is able to empower and inspire youth to reach their full potential and live a purposeful life. She highly values educators as the difference makers in kids' lives and strives to inspire them to BE GREAT. She has been a youth mentor for over 20 years for various organizations, such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Extreme Youth leadership, Project MALES, Teens in the Driver Seat, AVID, and TX Say What Tobacco Free Organization. She received 3 consecutive awards for Texas Sponsor of the Year for Texas Teens in the Driver Seat, Bilingual Teacher of the Year for her former district, and AVID Coordinator for a National Demonstration School. She has spoken for many events, from Drug and Alcohol Awareness Rallies, to STAAR Pep Rallies, Shattered Dreams Mock Simulations, Teacher Professional Development, and Mental Health Awareness Conferences, and much more.
