Eliza M. Garza is an author, speaker, and entrepreneur in South Texas! Eliza is passionate about her Hispanic heritage and is proud to integrate it into the many facets of her life. She believes that part of a child’s pathway to empowerment and authenticity is identifying, understanding, and embracing their culture at a young age so they can be prouder of who they are.

Eliza is also passionate about advocating for mental health and co-authored "Shades of Serenity", a calming coloring book for all ages.


Eliza is the founder of Adventure in a Cup, a program that provides children with the opportunity to learn the principles of entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and goal setting by practicing with their own raspa stand for a day.


Eliza was awarded with a Proclamation by the City of McAllen declaring a day (6/18) in honor of her book - Raspas Con Mi Grandpa Day, which is her Grandpa Chavez's birthday.


Eliza enjoys spending time with her family, which includes her spoiled poodle named Brinkley, being an active member of her community, and hosting collaborative and empowering events in her spare time.
