I came from West Africa; a world-torn country. Then I came to America; a world full of opportunities. I realized people didn’t support each other enough. They were in their own world, isolated from everyone. From that day on, I wanted to change the narrative, create a brand, and an entire movement that would bring people together. I found that my true purpose in life is to teach, to be the light for those who are lost in the darkness. This journey in creating the symbol of resilience does just that, it becomes the light in which we use to give hope to the hopeless.
Before Situated began to transpire, I found myself in a very shady environment. People were not showing each other love, hating on one another, and forming secret cliques. I found people caging themselves into a world of not feeling like they belonged or couldn’t fit into a positive environment. They were either suffering from a mental illness or didn’t have a group or
a community to connect with. I quickly realized I was able to bring those people together; like-minded individuals. The community I built was the foundation for this brand. I threw events to connect people and build relationships. We carried the symbol of resilience with confidence. It was every trial and error, every supposed failure that allowed me to develop what became known today as, Situated The Brand. Join the movement.
