Rahz “The Motivator" Slaughter is a motivational speaker who has spent years helping children and teens improve their mindsets and take charge of their lives. Born with a disability and raised by a single mother who suffered from addiction, he was told countless times that he had limitations, that there would be things that he could not do, be, or achieve. Despite these messages, Rahz was unstoppable and set out to create a life of his doing and not what others expected of him.
Today, Rahz Slaughter is a motivational speaker and successful business owner. He is also an athlete, personal trainer, nutritionist, and coach. He has spent over 20 years in the fitness business, coaching and motivating people to make better life choices and improve their health. He was told that he could not body build or train others, but he ignored that and went on to win second place in a National Amateur Body Building Association competition and has coached thousands of people to greatness.
Rahz especially finds great joy and fulfillment in shaping and motivating the mindsets of youth, particularly those who are "at-risk" or have difficult life circumstances.
At student assemblies, Rahz uses stories from his own challenging life experiences, and he teaches kids how he overcame his own negative circumstances. He reinforces your school's established core values, creates a compassionate environment, and infuses positivity and strength in today's youth. He teaches them how to develop skills to change negative mindsets and sends the message that anything is truly possible with determination, discipline, and hard work. And most of all, he connects with children in a way in which they take notice of his compassion and caring nature.
