Nice to meet you all! My name is Brian Lafortune and I’m a 20 year old semi professional soccer player, freestyler, and social media influencer. I primarily use my platform as a way to help and motivate my audience to be not just the best athletes, but to be the best person they could be. OAKED shared my vision and through partnering with them, inspired me to get out of my comfort zone much like I often encourage my audience to do and helped me create clothes to share. Kindness is a value that’s often overlooked nowadays and my idea with OAKED is to create clothing that sends a positive message not just for others but for ourselves. In this day and age, mental health issues has plagued many with a lack of self-kindness. Let’s try to love ourselves and one another, one step at a time!
