My name is Antwan Tolliver, the founder of “FREEDOM IS FLY”. 16 years ago I was the victim of senseless gun violence which left me a level  T-12 paraplegic, paralyzed from the waste down. When my injury first occurred, it was hard for me. I went from walking around freely to not being able to use my legs at all, confined to a wheelchair for the rest of my life. The adjustment took a toll on me mentally. I didn’t feel like myself. I felt uncomfortable in my own skin. Every now and then I would get dressed and go out with family & friends and that was the only time I felt alive. Which made sense. Because when you look good, you feel good! Which is the reason I created the brand “Freedom Is Fly”. An affordable Street style brand. I just want to let people in similar situations know, that It’s ok to not be like everyone else. It’s ok to not follow trends. It’s ok to be comfortable in your uniqueness. And that you can live a productive life just by being confident in the skin that you’re in and loving the true authentic person that God called you to be.
