Be Strong is really Erin's baby! The vision of these 2 entities working together began in 2017 with pop up shops for uniforms and classroom space that had to double as a skills area. As we look at the current space its easy to see how far Be Strong has come. Always processing through ideas - who knows what else might come to fruition.
