What were you doing in high school? We were most likely binging on our favourite TV show, so anything more productive than that is impressive to us.
A teenager from the Bronx, Mark Merphy, has made quite a name for himself in the fashion industry after just finishing high school!
Now a freshman at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, Merphy has started 40XL Clothing, and uses his undying love for his late grandfather as inspiration to propel forward.
He hopes that his customers “wear his clothes with pride and find their originality to shine through“.
Are you inspired? Because this truly made our day and we wanted to spread that feeling.
