    Your T-shirt tales

    Budding MD by day, Budding T-Shirt Entrepreneur By Night

    I'm a medical student from Philadelphia that's been working on a project in my (limited) free for quite a while now. The shirts embody my concept which is called UnderRepped. I came up with an idea with my dad that is all about paying homage to the great people who've done great things for society but are largely unknown. We call them history's unsung heroes. For example, Adolph Rikcenbacker invented the electric guitar in the early 1900s. Everyone loves music and knows about the electric guitar but few really know the face behind it. So I began a Kickstarter project (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/underrepped/underrepped-clothing) to help fundraise and I'm in my last week! I would love to share my story with CNN and most importantly think CNN readers would dig our shirt designs! Thanks for reading and considering our project for your blog.


    PS - That's me with one of my shirts
