ALEXA CARLIN EMPOWERS WOMEN TO GAIN THE COURAGE TO PURSUE THEIR DREAMS
Motivational Speaker & Founder & CEO of Women Empower X
At 17, she was a CEO. At 21 she had a 1 percent chance to live. Today, she is empowering and teaching people how to achieve their dreams. This is a story not just about women helping women, but about Carlin’s journey and the idea of fostering opportunities for women and for aspiring female entrepreneurs to learn, to grow, and to succeed. Her story of empowerment and tenacity is an inspirational one for women in business, actually, for all women.
Alexa Carlin is a serial entrepreneur and a nationally renowned public speaker sharing her story and experiences authentically to audiences all over the world. She launched the Women Empower X (WEX) in 2016 and grew it to become the largest event for female entrepreneurs and change leaders in South Florida and Washington D.C. within its first year and is now growing to 4 markets by 2020.
Alexa’s mission is to make a difference in at least one person’s life every single day.
"We've had several speakers come to our campus, but Alexa has been one of the most inspirational speakers to date. By sharing her story and integrating it with an action plan, she was able to make connections with our students that will undoubtedly last a long time. Her keynote was engaging and provided individuals with a rewarding experience, knowledge, and much reflection as they continue their journeys. The students and staff have provided us with nothing but positive feedback."

PAST SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
Purchase a copy of Alexa’s Cookbook
Alexa's near-death experience brought on a string of health issues including being diagnosed with severe Ulcerative Colitis. When no doctor could help her, she turned to food to help heal her body.
While suffering with severe symptoms from her autoimmune disease, Alexa decided to try and turn the negative (of being stuck at home feeling extremely isolated) into something positive, and wrote her first book, "The Simple Gluten-Free Vegan Cookbook".

“Alexa’s powerful message left our Live Más Scholarship students in awe of her journey, yet empowered and inspired enough to create their own. She was just as fun and engaging as she was raw and authentic which allowed our students to not only connect to her, but also to each other. We are grateful for her time and words of wisdom and hope future audiences find her insight just as impactful as we did."
