How We Got Started

Our History

My Life My Power (MLMP) is a National 501(c)3 Non-Profit, that was founded in 2010 by Undefeated Mixed Martial Arts Fighter and WWE’s Tough Enough Champion, Daniel Puder. While Daniel is now a pro athlete, things were quite different for him when he was growing up. He struggled with being overweight and was also in Special Education classes throughout the majority of his schooling, which caused him to be an easy target of bullying. When he began to hear of the kids who were committing suicide from being bullied, he felt a personal connection to the issue and knew that something needed to be done to change the mindset of our youth! Rather than simply saying a few public words about this issue, Daniel was compelled to create a program that provided long term solutions and could be implemented in schools and after-school programs!

 My Life My Power has attracted both national and worldwide attention as an innovative evidence-based program with a highly effective youth diversion and mentoring program. In addition to our youth program, we provide flexible and solution based trainings for adults to become mentors to youth in order to create a significant and purpose driven society. Trained mentors are then able to facilitate the MLMP program, which is founded upon utilizing positive psychology and motivational interviewing.
