Ovidilio 'Ovi' Vásquez is a Social Entrepreneur and National Keynote Speaker, renowned for championing the profound transformative impact education leaders have on our youth. His journey from being a young farmworker raised with no electricity until the age of 8 in Central America, and an English learner, to becoming the author of six books and a TEDx speaker on Self-Leadership, underscores his deep conviction. Today, he is one of the most compelling and sought-after young luminaries in cultivating leadership in our next generation.

He has worked for global giants like Apple, Tesla, Salesforce, and Uber, and is a frequent guest-expert on Univision. He also released a mobile app that offers $4MM in available scholarships for underprivileged students, enabling potential life-changing opportunities for others. Despite facing great obstacles, Ovi fast-tracked his education by completing high school in three years while working graveyard shifts and earned a B.A. in Management in just two years. His acceptance into Harvard Business School Online accentuates his academic prowess and determination.

As a father of three, Vásquez brings a unique, culturally attuned perspective to his work, being bilingual, biliterate, and deeply connected to his roots. This rich background enables him to connect with a wide array of audiences, imparting fresh insights that are both profound and accessible.

"I learned to wield a machete in the sugarcane fields at the tender age of eight, and continued working in the fields until I turned fifteen. When I moved to the U.S. in 2006 unaccompanied, my life changed forever. Soon after, my mother had to return home to care for my dying grandmother. Left alone, with zero support, I did the only thing I could do—survive..."
