For the month of July, we revisit our September entry of our 2L’s Y.E.S. Alex Ward stoos as an individual who had the mentality of success written in everything he put his mind to. 18 years old and recently graduating highschool from Wilson Central High School, Wards future goals of making his clothing line (Sharper Visions) a big name throughout the world has impacted many. While in highschool, Alex continued to lead the pack in various ways as he was a lead guard on the basketball team, a socialite amongst his peers, as well as in his community. Alex volunteered at the local Mt. Juliet public library reading to younger children and helping others as well.
Maintaining being known around his community in sports, working, reading books, watching documentaries on future moves, designing clothes, and anything art related are all a major part of Alex’s hobbies and involvement. Sharper Visions is more than just a clothing line. “I want it to be an inspiration for people to see things the way i see them.” Ward says. “It’s the whole perception of life and the roads you travel.” Ward sought out future aspirations to design and have his clothing line on Karmaloop.com.
The ambition and positivity showcased from Alex’s character, speaks volumes. “I just hope to change and give hope to young people like myself that you can chase your dream and achieve your dreams.” SV will live on forever.
