"I still play because I love the game."
When we're put in front a crowd we have two choices: to let our fears take over or face them. Not everyone's born with a drive to just take the spotlight, but it can be taught over time with proper exposure. Today's April and spring streetwear fashionista is Yasmeen who's the sister of blog regular, Sarah. However, the younger comes with her own story to tell which is one of growing acting experiences. Yasmeen has developed a love of performing and acting. It's one of few things that allows her to up and counter her shyness. By speaking in front of large crowds, this puts her out of her comfort zone. We applaud her because a life lived out of the comfort zone is a progressive one.
Growing up, if there was one mode of transportation that never failed when you couldn't find a ride, it was a bike. Yet for many kids, it's more than just two wheels because biking can become an exciting sport in the form of BMX. Showing off his spring street fashion is Zach, an avid BMX rider who's been in love with it for as long as he can remember. His main environment for his passion is the street using handrails, curbs, stairs, ledges, and banks to create new challenges. In Zach's case, one man's neighborhood is another man's obstacle. Although indeed a little bit dangerous, the thrill of a new trick to be learned is why Zach has become so involved in this discipline.

Hunter's also given an insight to what Diskko means for him, the struggles, the workload, and the sweetest parts of working for a growing company.
Life's a series of starts and finishes, ends and beginnings. When Alvaro, who's rocking some casual spring street wear, moved away from Long Island, he found himself in Central Jersey where a similar but new life awaited him. A string of social challenges presented themselves in a new location; however, Alvaro had to tackle his fears. Yet, it wasn't his first move either. He's originally an immigrant from Peru too, and Alvaro moved when he was nine. Luckily, at least this time he was just moving to another state instead of another country. Then again, any move can be a little bit nerve racking.
