He's only 19 years old, but the Milwaukee native and student at DePaul University is already concerned about his purpose in life.
"I wanted to think about how I can make an impact on a larger scale and I began to think about what can I do," shares Braylen Stevens.
He works to inspire others through his business 'MBRACED CULTURE." Behind the T-shirts he sells is an important message.
"I want them to think about being themselves. Not just being yourself but embracing who you are. "
Stevens admits it was not always easy. As a young man he always loved drama and theater. But he was afraid to share his talent with peers out. He feared being teased.
"For me being different was being interested in performing arts being interested in theater and not the athlete that everyone else admired."
