David Pride: Big Hair, Big Ideas, Even Bigger Impact
Professional Youth Speaker and Entrepreneur
Hi, I am David Pride and I have a passion for inspiring young people to live their best life possible. I talk with teens about successes and failures and what to do when everything in life seems to be going wrong. I am passionate about helping young people navigate the emotions of depression, sadness, and frustration and how to turn that negative energy into fuel to chase their dreams.
I recognize that life isn’t easy for young adults today. Teens live in a world of constant comparison where their own life just doesn’t compare to that of the celebrities or the internet famous. I teach young people how to navigate those feelings and how to keep pushing forward when everything is pushing back.
I first spoke as a professional youth speaker when I was in college and battling cancer. During the time I had Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Disease and was asked to share about my journey. During the talk, I realized that the season of pain and fear that I was currently experiencing was also helping to develop a message of hope and promise. Hope for tomorrow that life still can get better, and a promise that if I seek improvement each day, I won’t be let down.
“David’s presentation was inspirational, humorous and filled with practical information students could apply immediately. I will definitely bring him back and would recommend him to any group looking for an engaging, knowledgeable speaker.”
– Michelle Neujahr, Southern Maine Community College

“Thank you! Today was perfect! The kids each pulled something different from your talk, which is perfect. You covered exactly the things we talked about (bullying, motivation, goal setting) and pulled them together in a creative way that kept the kids laughing, kept their attention, and helped them learn when they didn’t even realize they were learning.”
