Laura Contreras-Rowe

laura-biopageLaura Contreras-Rowe was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Laredo, Texas. She received a BS in Broadcast Design and Telecommunications with a minor in Art History from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa Oklahoma in 1991.

2010 has been a great year for Laura’s book tour. She has traveled around the country speaking to over 30,000 students and adults from the West coast to the East coast. She has spoken to ex-gang members, pregnant teens, students who have just gotten out of juvenile detention. She has had the honor of speaking to mayors of different cities, school superintendents, school administrators, and teachers. Laura’s message of hope and inspiration to Latina’s and underprivileged students across the country has been well received. Laura’s desire is to empower a wide range of people; not only businessmen and women, but also elementary school, middle school, high school and young adults, in addition to Hispanic and minority women. Her role as a consultant is uniquely diverse because she has the ability to speak to all types of groups, including but not limited to; real estate agents, business people, young and upcoming leaders, as well as minorities. Her opportunity to function as motivational speaker, consultant and trainer is an opportunity that has been recently presented, however, is something that goes down to the core of Laura‚Äôs heart and beliefs. She has already been presented with many opportunities to speak to her peers in the real estate business and conduct training seminars to motivate and empower her fellow realtors to rise to a new level in their careers. Her speaking and consulting has taken her to many places; both nationally and internationally.

Laura also strongly believes there is a huge gap in today’s society for our minority youth of America. It is this belief that has given Laura the opportunity to speak to many children and young leaders in high school and college. Currently Laura is currently working on her new inspirational book called Aim High and Dream Big. Her books are projects to inspire, motivate, empower and bring a message of HOPE and inspiration to those who are in need.

Laura would love the opprtunity to speak at your organization, church or school. You can email her for her speaking fee’s.
