False Image Fashion Podcast Episode #16: The Last Thread

I can’t think of how many times I have said thank you to all those who have supported the False Image Fashion Podcast. When I originally came up with this idea in 2014 I struggled with having enough confidence that I could really continue on with my passion for fashion and speaking life into people’s lives . It was until I found myself in the very box of thought that the podcast wasn’t for myself it was for the kid sitting at home not having a clue or direction about how he is going to follow his dreams. Maybe even the recent college graduate who went to school and developed a passion for this one thing in mind but was badgered by the fears of family and friends who themselves were scared of chasing their own dreams. Producing four months of quality content can come with its challenges and its rewards as well. This episode today wraps up Season 1 of the False Image Fashion Podcast as we are more excited to announcing Season 2 of the False Image Fashion Podcast. Please make sure if you have not listen to all the episodes of this Season 1 take out the time to check those out. Also, shoot myself us email to let me know your thoughts about the first season of the podcast at info@falseimage.net . In addition, going into the first part of 2016 we will be releasing the visual parts of the interviews we conducted with some of our featured guest make sure you check out Youtube and Vimeo page. Again I thank everyone who decided to listen to any of the podcasts. Be Encourage and Be Creative!

False Image Fashion Podcast Episode 11: Mobile Kappa League

Today’s episode I took the liberty to return back to my hometown Mobile, Alabama. Mobile is a place that gave me my foundation to be encouraged to take the road less travel. Growing up in Mobile I always felt that my city was portrayed in a very negative way more specifically the young males in the local community. With so much negative press about our young males in our society I thought to myself how encouraging is that to our generation to move towards progress not just for ourselves but for others as well. So I decided I will use the False Image Fashion Podcast platform to promote positivity and as well highlight one of the most progressive organization, The Mobile Kappa League . The Mobile Kappa League is designed to help young men grow, receive, and develop their leadership talents in every phase of human endeavor. It provides both challenging and rewarding experiences, which richly enhanced their lives. The members of the Kappa League are exposed to the opportunity of college prep workshops, community service projects, and the improving of ones self-image. Today we sit down with three members of the Mobile Kappa League: Ahmad Parker, Avery Grier , and Malik Cooper . The conversation we have today is about how has being a member of Mobile Kappa League help them in society, how has their individual styles impacted their peers, and the pressures of a teenager in today’s society. These gentleman share their thoughts and career aspirations which has me to believe that they are prepared to become the next generation’s leaders.
