Today we’d like to introduce you to Francois Lewis.
Hi Francois, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
After college, I had an idea to create a brand that people would enjoy as well as give a great message. The message of our brand is “Be Unique Always”. I’ve always felt that I was unique on the way I talked, walked and moved in life. I wanted to share that passion and mindset with our city to help show the next generation you don’t have to for in. You don’t need to be impressive but you need to be impactful. That’s what I plan to do everyday through our brand.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road for us but greatness comes from the storm that you must go through. Finding distributors, customers & support are some of the key challenges we have faced. Yet, I know a brand with a great message and overall helping idea will always prevail.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a professional basketball player, author & a philanthropist. I am currently working on creating my first nonprofit, the “Be Unique Always” foundation for the young community in the greater Orlando area. I am most proud of my first book releasing in the fall of last year. Most people see athletes as a one trick pony and I wanted to change that narrative to show the younger generation you don’t have to conform to any box society tries to put you in.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
First and foremost, I want to thank God for this opportunity. My parents and my sister also played a big role in helping me start as well as stay positive through all the ups and downs. My church Christ Dominion Church of God also played a major role in giving me the endurance in this race that I am currently on.
