Daniel Puder - Executive Director of My Life My Power

Daniel Puder / My Life My Power

Daniel is an advocate for public education and he believes that his purpose in life is to inspire youth of all ages to lead significant and purpose driven lives!He is an author, professional speaker, and professional athlete, all of which play a key role in his unique approach to working alongside youth, parents, educators, community members and business leaders in order to provide long term and sustainable results within our schools and communities. He travels around the world leading school assemblies, workshops, training seminars and keynote speaking presentations that focus on providing adults with the tools and resources needed to be effective mentors to their students and their own children.

He currently serves as the Executive Director of his 501(c)3 Non-Profit that he founded in 2010 called, My Life My Power (MLMP), which provides an evidence-based curriculum to schools and after-school programs who have a desire to impact and transform their student’s lives through mentoring.

While Daniel’s background is that of a professional athlete (Undefeated Mixed Martial Arts Fighter and Champion of WWE’s Tough Enough Competition), he goes on to tell his story of overcoming challenges and adversity when he was younger. While growing up, he was bullied and harassed almost daily by his peers because he was overweight and had learning disabilities. Over a decade later, and after much success, he decided to use his celebrity title in a way that could truly make a difference for children and teenagers who themselves are facing challenges – not just bullying. Thus, My Life My Power began and since then, Daniel has made it his life’s mission to be build the next generation of mentors that can impact millions of children and teenagers!
Daniel is also the Co-CEO of The International Red Ribbon Movement (IRRM), which was founded in 2015 and is evidence-based for youth K-12. Unlike other campaigns which take place over the course of a week and urge students to “say no to drugs”, IRRM takes a more proactive and preventative approach to helping youth stay committed to being drug free by helping them to discover their mission, vision and purpose in life over the course of the entire school year!

Because of Daniel’s dedication to youth, he has received numerous awards such as Humanitarian of the Year Award for the Golden Badge Foundation, Honorary Service Award from the California Parent Teacher Association, and was sworn into the United States Marine Corp League in 2015.
