Christel Reyna Resilience Life Coach and Keynote Speaker

Christel Reyna

Meet Christel, a remarkable individual who goes above and beyond the ordinary. She's a globally renowned keynote speaker, a certified life coach specializing in resilience, and an esteemed advocate for human rights, recognized with awards for her unwavering commitment.


Christel's heart beats with a fervent dedication to reproductive justice and equal rights. She's at the forefront of the battle for women's and LGBTQIA+ community rights, leaving an indelible mark on the cause.


Having faced the harrowing trauma of rape firsthand, Christel intimately understands the uphill struggles women encounter in accessing vital reproductive health services. She recognizes the pivotal role that a supportive community plays in the journey towards healing.


But Christel's story doesn't conclude there. Her life took a transformative turn at the age of 19, leading her through a labyrinth of brokenness and confusion. It was only when she embraced motherhood by choice that her purpose became crystalline. Witnessing her own son endure bullying and physical assaults for being gay ignited a fierce determination within her.


In 2012, alongside her son, she established DAREZEMPOWER, a platform dedicated to raising awareness about bullying and preventing teen and young adult suicides. As a certified life coach, Christel identified the pressing need for affordable coaching services in underserved communities, spurring her to provide low-cost resilience coaching.


Today, Christel and her team extend their expertise, offering coaching, mental health first aid training, and human rights advocacy training to clients worldwide, spanning private, educational, and corporate sectors. Fearlessly, Christel employs her voice as a catalyst for legislative change and the fight for the rights of all individuals.


Join Christel on this empowering journey and become a resounding voice for change.
