...more about the poem
"As a creative, I believe one should have multiple ways of express him or herself. I express myself in many different art forms. The Statement Tee was based on a poem I wrote a year prior to the conception of the collection. I wrote the poem to inspire and uplift myself as going through the inevitable
struggles of every day life. The poem shifted my focus to realize my success is also inevitable."
