About

I want to start by telling you about myself. So for anyone who is reading this right now I appreciate you for reading this. 

 For the past 4-5 years I have been in a very dark place with my mental health. I have suffering with general depression and anxiety. In the world we live in there are currently up to 300 million people with depression & 1 in 6 people every week experience a mental health problem such as anxiety and depression. 

I have been able to understand myself better with the help from professionals. I use take an antidepressant to aid me. There are a lot of people who gives antidepressants a bad name but what I believe is that if anyone is suffering with depression or anxiety to please recommend to speaking to your doctors there are many possibilities if done right and you do not have to take these forever as I am currently not taking anything and feeling better. 

My current mental state is much improved and I can start to see myself enjoying life. Things that I found what helps best with my mental health are; watching motivational videos on YouTube, watching comedy, music, exercise, reading books, investing and looking into self-development, meditation & breathing exercises, I recommend and use Wim Hof's method.


WHY "SMILE"?

I have always been an admirer of the fashion industry. During my time being low I thought of of what I wanted to do with my life and I came to the conclusion that I would go into the fashion industry as this is a passion of mine. To be able design apparel for people to wear all around the world. I believe apparel designs can be used to communicate without the need to speak. 

When thinking of what to design I had in mind of something that will send a special message to the people. I came up with the "SMILE" design. It is said that when we smile dopamine, endorphins and serotonin are released in our bloodstream helping our body to relax. These all are reduced in our brain lacks when feeling depressed. It is amazing what are bodies are able to do. Believe it or not smiling is able to reduce stress, improve mood & boost the immune function. This is why I want to spread this unique message on apparel to people all around the world. 


Concluding;

Before I finish of my writing I want you to know that if you are suffering in any way please know better days will come you just have to focus on improving yourself. You are amazing. So if you can do me one more favour wherever you are reading this from take 10 seconds out and just SMILE for me. 


Thank you all for listening to my story.

Risks and challenges

Depending on how many of the T-SHIRTS are backed maybe be a slight delay on the manufacturing side as they will all need to be custom made and printed on.
