Samaad Jordan is the creator of Fly Boi Lifestyle, a cool new brand that encourages kids to Trust Your Dopeness! And at only fourteen years old, Samaad is helping pave the way for more kids to follow their dreams. Samaad’s brand includes watches, skateboards, hats, shirts and socks. He uses graphic lines and bold colors, and his upbeat style is both energetic and positive. That ties in with his message—Free To Love Yourself, that Samaad hopes to share with his brand.
Samaad was nice enough give us an interview, and answer a few questions about his Fly Boi lifestyle brand.
You are a big believer in loving yourself and your differences. Why do you think that’s important?
Yes, I am a believer in loving oneself. It’s important because when you love yourself, you’re able to live freely in who God has created you to be. It’s important for teens to love themselves so that we don’t fall in the trap of peer pressure and making the wrong decisions.
You are a musician, designer, and skater! How do you find time to do it all?
I find time by taking my time balancing being a student and a teen first. I practice playing the guitar weekly with my instructor. When I am out with my friends, that’s when I practice skateboarding. I’m not that good yet, but I love it and I’m working at it. As for designing, the ideas hit me and then I create as they come.
What is your advice for kids who want to create their own brands or products?
My advice for teens and kids that choose to create their own brands is know that it will take lots of work and dedication, Get a mentor and have your parents help if you can. Don’t be scared of failing, because you will, and you’ll learn from it. Most important thing is, love what you’re doing. If you don’t love it, then it’s not what you are called to do.
Who would you love to see wearing your designs?
I would love for the group Maroon Five and Linkin Park to be wearing anything I make. Also Chris Brown. I like his music.
What should we be watching for next from Fly Boi?
Well I can’t say right now. However, look out for some more T-shirts and follow me on FB and Instagram for some updates. Be sure to stay connected by visiting my website.
What else would you like to say to our readers?
I wanted to say this I keep God first in my life it grounds me. I also am able to be a teen and enjoy life. I thank my parents for that. I think that is why I can do all I do and still have fun.
