Hidden Gems: Meet Sama’ria Bass of Pardon My Detroitness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sama’ria Bass. 

Hi Sama’ria, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I started Pardon My Detroitness in the year 2017 for a purpose and expression basically as you know we Detroiters have this reputation whether it’s bad or good to ANYBODY that isn’t from here so with that I created a phrase and movement for my Detroiters to let outsiders know ‘PARDON MY DETROITNESS” I’m where I am today with Pardon My Detroitness because I choose to be positive in every situation. I prefer to surround myself with positive people and fill my mind with positive thoughts and I’m thankful for all the support from my city. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Not at all the life of an entrepreneur is not for the weak ahaha. the biggest hardship is staying motivated. I have taken a 6month break once before just to figure out the business side of things and how to continue to prosper within my business. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Pardon My Detroitness specializes in urban Detroit wear we are known for our unique apparel. what sets me apart from others is that I’m a person of my word strong and self-confident and I’m most proud of how far the Pardon My Detroitness brand has come because I’ve learned a lot and grown a lot from all the trials and tribulations that have been thrown at me in life within the years. 

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
I’ve learned staying motivated and positive is the only way to strive and I’ve always kept in the back of my mind “YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK’!
