Ray Polanco Jr Named Top 50 Influencer along with Pharrell & LeBron James by FootwearNews 2018

with my birthday only two weeks away, I can’t believe what i’m reading… bro, TOP 50 Influencer of the year for my work with brands and collab with Converse?! along side Pharrell (an idol), LeBron James, the Olson Twins, Tyler the Creator, Aleali May and more, i’m truly honored. thank you so much FootwearNews.

i took a leap of faith betting everything on myself in february of this year by leaving media and jumping right into consulting as well as launching my own mentoring program for young creatives. to be recognized 8months later for all of my hard work only motivates me to keep going. i’ve always wanted to stand on my own two feet next to my idols and others doing great things in the world. i truly feel this is just the beginning.

if you fuck with me, thank you so much. and if you hate on me, thank you so much. this is a win for people who dream big when we have nothing in front of us. big thank you to all the brands who believed in my vision this year
