    Hi, I have watched my big brother succeed throughout his career. My brother always had to struggle to become a successful and professional artist with his craft. Nothing came easy for him, however, he just kept paving his way and now he is one of the most honorable, trustworthy tailor that I’ve ever encountered. The struggle is real, however, he does not complain and stays perservance and grounded. No matter what.
