The Face. The Story. The Vision.
Woman. Black. Queer. Neurodivergent. First generation college graduate. Creative. Advocate. Powerful.
These are some of the many things that contribute to who I am today and that gave me the courage to create something that would allow those beautiful things to shine, unapologetically. Because as someone who has struggled with my mental health for much longer than I can imagine, I have lost myself and found myself just to lose myself again, countless times. Life is like a never-ending emotional roller coaster that constantly reveals that in spite of all the ugly things in this world, there are still things that are beautiful.
Wildflowaaa by L'Raé was brought to me at one of the lowest points of that roller coaster, thus far. That is why Wildflowaaa by L'Raé is more than a brand. It is a name that reflects who I am in more ways than one. A name created based on artistic expression and advocacy in support of the many struggles we don't speak about. One that I hope will provide people with a space in which they will feel heard, understood and encouraged through transparency. Promoting awareness understanding, community and love. A name that will remind people that they are not alone in their experiences and thoughts.
I am Alysse. I am Wildflowaaa by L'Raé.
And I am eternally grateful for your support.
