We often hear the question, ‘Why Apollo?’. The answer is actually quite important regarding what we stand for and I wanted to be able to share the answer with all of you here in hopes that you can become a part of the movement of our generation finally being heard through our own voices. Not ones others prescribed to us.
When Josh and I were discussing what we wanted to do with our futures, we initially threw around the typical answers we were raised to believe were the definition of “success”. Becoming a programmer, joining a marketing department, or even continuing with more school… (the thought makes me cringe just writing about it). The truth is, both of us and a large portion of our peers feel the same notion – we don’t want to live by someone else’s rules. We are all here for a reason, and I refuse to believe that my purpose is to sit in a beige cubicle for the next twenty years. Is yours? If so, I can respect that, but this may not be the place for you. For those of you that are still here, welcome to the family. Welcome to the movement.
Here at Apollo, we want to bring the new horizon (get it now?!?) that is our generation. We want to take the problems given to us by those who came before and turn them into opportunities for us to lead. I believe that we all have the potential to be the light of the world, we simply need to step into what our true callings are.
I look forward to standing alongside each of you as we begin to shape the world for the new age. Do not settle for the status quo.
