Seth Bonez

Baton Rouge, Louisiana born and raised. Then moved to Houston at 20 years old to get away from the “crab in a bucket” mentality a lot of people are in Louisiana its unfortunate but its truth. Lionhearted to me means fighting and never getting up on what it is you want no matter the obstacle. Either you have a physical disability or a mental disability. Don’t let that or no one stop you from doing what it is you want to do. I started the brand at the beginning of 2018 to get the word and knowledge out around my condition, which is Cerebral palsy. I was always told I would not walk I would not make age 12, let alone 18 years old. I have play football, I’ve run track, and now I powerlift because I was told I couldn’t do it. So the brand LIONHEARTED was started and I also branded the slogan “NEVER SAY I CAN’T.” Read more>>

Ahmad Sule

Hello, my name is Ahmad Sule, and I grew up as the chosen one in my family and their name was given to me by my cousin Delton at a very young age, I would say around 5-6 years old. I was a big Star Wars fan and he knew that and so in Star Wars and I can Skywalker, he’s displayed as the chosen one to set balance to force and hearing that at a young age as a big star wars fan, I was excited I was like I took it in proudly. So I grew up with much confidence in myself because I feel like I am the chosen one in my family. Fast forward a few years, till my sophomore year of high school, I started selling snacks like chips, juice, cookies, candy, anything of that sort influenced by my older sister who did it during her time in high school for a short time. Read more>>

Shekia Murray

A little over a year ago, I purchased a “Retro iPhone case” do you remember the old 80’s-90’s huge phones that had an antenna sticking up? Haha, well that type of phone case. I’ve always been a different individual that loves the odd thing over the norm (Hint I’m an Aquarius). This one purchase literally was changing my life the day I received my package and I had no idea at the time. Everyday no matter where I go at least 3-5 different individuals would stop me in my track just to either compliment me on my phone case, request I share the link so they too can purchase, or even just to touch it. As time goes on so does the many compliments; I probably know half of Houston by now all because of my super cool phone case, haha! Read more>>

Caleb Hernandez

My journey as an artist started in sixth grade when I found my mom’s old 1981 Casio CTK-401 keyboard. It barely worked, covered in dust from sitting in the attic, and I had no idea what I was doing. Little did I know that finding what I thought was a toy at the time would change my life completely. That small “toy” piano led to me learning a number of different instruments. I ended up teaching myself how to play guitar when I was 13 to impress my middle school crush, which didn’t work but at least I got a life skill out of it. A few years later, after making music for a while, I needed a new way to convey a message through my art discovered my love for photography and film thanks to my old AV teacher Mr. Alex Ortiz at Elsik High School. Film was a way for me to not only convey an emotion but tell a story. Read more>>
