Some of you have been asking me about what this Always True Company thing is: Who they are, why I’m always with them. Put simply, I’m one of their social media interns. Specifically for their Instagram of about 16,000 followers.
Always True Company was started by Drew and Sam Howard, and their friend Kevin Masaro in December 2015. It’s a lifestyle brand that spreads positivity and inspires purpose, encouraging millennials to follow their dreams. This lifestyle is pushed through clothing and an unparalleled level of transparency the Howard brothers and Masaro share with their customers. Their inspiration is rooted in the Howards’ older brother, Brandon K. Howard. He was a rapper, musician and artist, that went by the stage name Always True. He tragically passed away at the young age of 20, but left behind a legacy strong enough to drive the momentum of this brand. Check out their website to read more about their story.
To me, Always True was an answer.
Before Always True, I was internally conflicted: Focus on my passions and true interests or do what I’m “supposed” to do in life? Risk finding myself through new roads or follow the beaten path? Always True validated that I could actually do both; I could focus my energy on school while giving my all into doing what I love most.
I know a lot of you don’t know what you want to do, but that’s okay and it’s totally normal. I’m figuring it out everyday. Always True is for everyone that has ever wanted something, but didn’t believe they could get it. When you wear Always True, you aren’t just wearing a brand; you’re wearing a reason to be. A reason to be honest with yourself, a reason to be a greater version of yourself and a reason to be an inspiration.
I spend a lot of time with them because I’m working to reflect their lifestyle on Instagram. I have to understand it, therefore, live it. It’s easier to achieve your dreams when you’re surrounded by people who crave to succeed like you do. Stay tuned, for more of me and the Always True Company.
