The concept of Rejecks originated as the story of us—Sarah and Ty—navigating their way through the journey and struggles of high school. Both characters are different from the rest of their peers—each unalike in their own way. Our designs depict the challenges and funny scenarios that arise on their unique paths. Rejecks conceived of its graphic tee and clothing brand as a canvas to transform and illuminate the portrayal of “rejects” in society.
I began working for my family business at a young age and discovered my entrepreneurial spirit early on. I began selling cakes, candy, bracelets and empanadas and through this experience, I knew that I was meant to build and manage something distinctly my own. Moreover, my enthusiasm for the pursuit of new ideas never ceased.
My upbringing had its share of tough times and always kept that part of my life private—but these challenging experiences taught me the importance of perseverance and made me into a strong, hardworking, and humble individual. During my teens, bad energy tainted my life and compromised my path. I did not give in to the pressure, however, and had to believe that I always had another chance to change—to start again. Then one day, I took this opportunity and never looked back.
Starting Rejecks with Chad saved my life—it gave me an understanding of who I am and a chance to relive my youthful pastime of getting lost in my imagination and the creative process. Moreover, I am able to express myself as the person I have always wanted to be. Rejecks gave me the chance to share what inspired me as a kid with the world—and introduce you to Sarah!
