Thank you for visiting the online home of the Usos Foundation, Inc.! Usos Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that focuses on changing the lives of at-risk and wayward young men and women. It gets them away from the streets, away from drugs, gangs, negativity, broken homes, etc. and gives scholarships to the world-renowned Wild Samoan Pro-Wrestling Training Center, where they learn structure, guidance, discipline, trust, camaraderie, the mind-body-spirit connection, exercise, valuable career-building and entrepreneurial skills, and much more.

I was born Laurel Danielle Bullock Varty, the only child of a failed marriage between two star crossed friends. I took my great-grandmother's maiden name, O'Connor, to celebrate my Celtic heritage.
My parents divorced when I was a toddler, my estranged father was never a positive part of my life. My single mother's parents struggled to assert a positive influence, providing balance and stability.
