“I want students to know that there’s hope, that they should never stop believing in themselves.” – Gabe Salazar

As a teenager, Gabe Salazar struggled to find his identity. Growing up in a single parent home that often did not make ends meet, Gabe was transferred from one school to another. At each new school, he ‘reinvented’ himself to fit in with whatever was popular and trendy at that campus.

Now Gabe speaks about these life experiences, captivating students with his genuine delivery abd speaking candidly about teen culture. He provides strategies for overcoming obstacles in the classroom and beyond. He tells students that it’s not too late to turn things around for themselves.

Gabe believes a good message is like a good movie or a good song — it’s something you can hear over and over again.
