Wanting to offer our customers some insight on the messages behind our brand, we figured that interviewing customers with similar interests as us could offer an alternate perspective of our brand from someone else's point of view. Chris Caleon has been an ambassador for APPK since early August and continues to promote our apparel because of our shared outlooks. You can find him at his instagram @chriscaleon spreading positive vibes to his followers while aspiring to be one of the next top models. Because of the immense amount of positivity put forward on his account, we figured he was most deserving of our first blog post where we will be highlighting different aspects of APPK and promoting positivity.
Introduce yourself! Where are you from and what’s your story?

What’s your favorite thing about APPK?
"My favorite thing about APPK is their quality and concentration to detail in their products."

Are there any experiences you’d like to share that would qualify you as an “Anti Popular Popular Kid”?
Do you think weird is the new norm?
"I believe being weird is just a term of being different. I wouldn’t consider it a norm. Being different is what separates the strong and weak."
Why do you think it’s important to be yourself and be original?
"I believe being yourself and original, expresses the uniqueness in yourself and excludes you from all the other people that want to be “normal”. It’s okay to be different."
What advice do you have regarding social norms that you would like to share?
"I think that people shouldn’t think that just because someone dresses a certain way or acts a certain way, makes them weird. It just represents them being themselves."
