Not Wright Brand, LLC was inspired by my daughter who is autistic. Not Wright¿ means “Own Who You Are”. I’ve always told her to own her disability because in today’s world nobody is going to have sympathy for you, especially as a female and a minority. You can be anything you aspire to be in life. You’re always going to be seen as not right in other eyes. Thus, owning who you are can reveal the best version of yourself you can be.
