Ernesto Mejia

Ernesto Mejia, the proud son of Mexican immigrants, is a true example of the American dream. Diagnosed with the rare disease of Guillain Barré Syndrome at the age of 16 that left him temporarily paralyzed, he was not supposed to be a successful student, much less a College Dean of Students. Through his hardships, Ernesto learned to never give up on life, he now speaks to students, parents and teachers about overcoming obstacles and never giving up on the American Dream: Education.

Carlos Ojeda Jr.

Carlos Ojeda Jr. has been called one of the most dynamic speakers in America today. A former university administrator, business professor and small business development center director, he now focuses his energy on empowering students, parents and teachers to succeed by teaching them that their voice is their power. He is a youth development expert, with over fifteen years of experience inspiring students from elementary school to college and education professionals in over 40 states.
