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.
