I thought we were going to talk about clothes. Â The meeting took place at Status Shop,Â one of Philly’s best street wear boutiques and I thought Nehemiah Davis was simply a 24 year old aspiring fashion designer from Philly.Â Who the hell knew that, not only does he also run a non-profit, but that he also owns three other profitable businesses?Â Who knew that his father has been in prison since Nehemiah was 2 years old?Â Who knew that Nehemiah didnâ€™t finish college (yet)?
I was going to transcribe our conversation but it wouldâ€™ve been a structural nightmare given the stops and turns the conversation took. And the conversation was too in depth and too important to edit.Â So here is the recording in its entirety. Â Nehemiah Davis, aka Neo Daviso is a young man whose achievements and aspirations go way beyond clothing. Â The conversation we had reveals the story behind a young man who had to fight through seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to be where he is and to go where he’s going.

Thank me later.
