Aric began his quest by going to college and becoming a teacher at San Antonio’s Judson High School. He recognized that his students were looking for someone to help guide them and inspire them, just as he had when he was a teen. It became Aric’s mission to help his students overcome their own personal stories—the stories that were holding each of them back. Aric started by launching an afterschool program called the Goal Setters Club. He quickly saw how powerful this experience was and what a difference it made in students’ lives, thus, he knew he needed to reach as many students as possible. Aric’s career as a motivational speaker was born.
In the past decade, Aric has spoken to over half a million students across the United States on how to be true to themselves by living their own dreams—not someone else’s. Aric teaches actionable lessons on how to succeed at the game of life by making good choices, staying in school, and being a role model for others, helping others to see their own potential.
Aric’s presentations and workshop training for parents and teachers are equally as powerful; firing them up to make a difference in young people’s lives, showing them what it takes to be a great parent and teacher, and sharing with them the communication and motivation tools he’s found to benefit students. Aric’s all-encompassing assemblies, team building, and motivational messages are empowering and infectious!
