Behind the Brand is a video series that we started that talks about why we truly started Bproud and why it means a lot to us. We also share stories about our childhood and upbringing as well as highlight key collaborations, videos and partnerships.
Check out our videos below and get to know the people behind Bproud!
Bproud was founded by Jospin Mugisha and Japhety Ngabireyimana. They are cousins who were born and raised in Kibondo, Tanzania. Jospin's family moved to America after his mother was hospitalized during a robbery. Japhety's family followed one month later. Life in America was supposed to be a relief from war, but their families were thrown into a world of poverty, discrimination, and racism.
HOW WE STARTED BPROUD
We created Bproud with a mission to create a difference in the world. We want every individual to be proud of themself. As full-time college students, Japhety and Jospin endured many challenges while starting Bproud. From shipping delays to design constraints.
Since we started Bproud we have gotten amazing opportunities within our communities. Watch the video to hear some of Jospin and Japhety's favorite Bproud moments so far!
