Hello. I have a12 year old almost13 pretty soon and he loves loves to draw shoes…he has been drawing shoes ever since I bought him his 1st pair of Jordan’s at the age of 3. I showed him your post and he is very interested in just being apart if something different..i did advise him that he would only be volunteering till he turns the appropriate age…he says he doesn’t care..its the fact that he is able to learn n give feedback.. I am a single mother of 3 and he is my oldest..we have had so many tragedies n his life at a young age..i feel n he feels like changing himself to help me take care of us.. His grandfather died in front of him in the beginning of the year his grandmother passed at his football game.we were put out of the house she shared with her friend.. I lost my job..we became homeless and living in my car for four months…taking wash ups in park bathrooms just so they would be clean going bak to school..i have been blessed with a job but it takes 12hours away from me being with my kids so he says ma I need to help u I say baby u r too young…he said ma I can do something to get u back home because we need u..but I explained to him that all I want him to do is enjoy his life because I got it.but he explained to me that he hates to see me struggle for us by myself..he just wants to I’m reaching out to u.. To see if u can be a motivational big brother to him. Teach n show him things I cant… From a real mans perception. He has told me that he feels like he needs a man to raise him..but I say no..all u gotta do is listen focus and pay attention…n ima raise u to be the best man ever…but I need a little help…if I put him into something that has all of his interests then his focus will be positive…can u with not asking for no compensation in just asking for your experience and knowledge in helping me raise a young man into a successful man..u can call me at 678-755-4713…my mam is Michelle his name is Myron.

Greetings! My name is Anton and I am a 15 year old 10th grader who is in a magnet architecture design program in my school. I have been designing shoes for about 2 years and would like the opportunity to work with you to not only share my ideals but to learn from a new up and coming fashion mogul. This opportunity will allow me to gain experience and perhaps help me secure a good space in a great college. Thank you in advance for your consideration. Have an outstanding day.

Syreeta Baker:

This is what I call #blackexcellence! My life has been about supporting black owned business and encouraging the black community to start up there own business and follow their own dreams by finding the greatness within, knowing it and owning it! Education is the key and knowing thyself is where it starts and everything else comes naturally as its within our DNA to be great!

I have been creating and crafting since a small girl, leaving school with an A* in Art & Design which lead to my extensive knowledge and experience in fashion and design (my passion) for years I have been visualising a change in the market place in all industries as black ownership is rare, however I have seen a huge growth in black entrepreneurs around the globe. So I’m excited for the future and I’m only interested in owning and controlling resources and putting our roots into the ground and grow tall and strong nobody will pull us up!

We must become the majority to win….#communityorder#groupeconomics
