Karlee PSA – Following your Dreams by “My Life My Power”

My Life My Power (MLMP) is a National 501(c)3 Anti-Bullying and Youth Development Non-Profit, that was founded in 2010 by Undefeated Mixed Martial Arts Fighter and WWE’s Tough Enough Champion, Daniel Puder. While Daniel is a now a Professional Athlete, things were quite different for him while 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! Therefore, rather than simply saying a few public words about this issue, Daniel was compelled to create a complete program, geared toward youth, to be implemented in schools and after-school programs to prevent more tragedies from happening. And that is how My Life My Power began!

How she felt when she got word she would be part of NXT: “You know, I was trying not to have my expectations too high. I had been down in FCW for quite a while, the longest out of the group of girls that did, the first season we did of NXT and at that point in time my mind’s eye I felt I was as ready as I could be although realizing I still had a lot more growing to do and learning but I was pumped about it. I really wanted to bring something different that they didn’t have from the females, at least at that moment and that’s kinda what I concentrated on with NXT.”

What it was like coming through FCW: “FCW was a big eye-opener for me; it was an experience. You end up with a family because we are together all the time, non-stop, always. Training together, driving together, eating together, it’s just everyone is in your business and it just becomes really like a family. And, at the same time, it’s a family that we’re pretty much told that we need to claw your way to the top against each other, and sometimes you just don’t want to; sometimes you actually grow to like the people you’re around and you’re pretty much telling me there’s only one spot and I have to backstab this person to get it? You know, there were people that stood by your side and there were people who would watch you fall or at least try to.”

Who were her favorite people to work with: “You I had people. I got along with Naomi really, really well. Me and her were always buddy-buddy. Down there, there was always the same crew that would drive down to the shows together; I’ve got to think of their new names now, their new work names. We had Damien Sandow; he and I were real close. He’s hilarious and awesome; I think he’s doing great too. Also, Sheamus when he was down there; we used to drive to shows together. It’s amazing to see the difference in how much people grow in that business still. I’m very happy for those, the one that did and made it and experience such a good quality like they have. “
