I am a rebel and a punk, but also a successful entrepreneur and graduated from an ivy league university. I believe that you can be successful and educated and still be a punk. Punk is about rebellion, creativity, self confidence and challenging the establishment. I like challenging the establishment, and being successful actually makes it much easier.
I like showing to the outside world that I am a rebel and a punk. I have a mohawk and go with it to the office, I wear steel toed boots and a studded belt to work. A lot of people actually have complimented me on my looks and told me that they wished they had the self cofidence to pull it off.
I also find it fun to see how people underestimate you or put you in a box because of the way you look. People are often shocked and surprise about what I really do when they expected a stereotypical punk. This rocks!
