The Founder



or me the seed of creativity was planted at birth. Diversity and uniqueness was something I didn’t have to seek after, but it chose me. Growing up in the inner city was where people pleasing and following the latest trends were for most youths their primary ingredients on a daily basis. But I was the one that could never adjust, that could never conform to my peers. Although at times I felt like I was looked upon by many as an OUTCAST I became comfortable with being distinct from others with my style, mindset and character. All abstracted from what seem to be the norm. Diverse.City was created to Fortify and Inspire those that stand out from what society may call grotesque.  -Shannon Ballard
