Raia Carey

Motivator and panelist Biography

Coach Raia is a believer that everyone is capable of greatness, and she’s made a career of empowering others to reach it.

When Raia Carey walked into her 4th grade classroom, she wasn’t just the only new kid. She was the only Black and overweight kid. Despite the fact that she was bullied, she still introduced herself to every one of her classmates and learned something about them. And though she may have not known it at the time, this experience would set her on a path to grow into who she would eventually become.

Today, Raia is a 3x certified life coach, motivational speaker, and fitness enthusiast who specializes in helping people find their confidence – no matter who they are, or how they identify.

As confidence is the foundation of everything people do, she helps people move past the things holding them back to activate a profound belief in themselves that they never knew they had. Raia is living proof that any person or athlete can overcome the obstacles facing them – as long as they set their minds to it.
