History of Simply Nerdie
How Simply Nerdie came about- The story behind Simply Nerdie began in 2017, my son and I came up with an idea as he was being bullied in Junior High School. He was being called names, such as “nerd” in addition to being bullied. We had our father and son conversations as to how to handle situations as well as what can we do to stop the bullying. We wanted to bring awareness to the issue of bullying itself. Bottom line, no one deserves to be bullied, not my son or any other child. Our conversations included how “Nerds” shape our world. We looked at technology, cool things such as driverless cars, to social media and smart phones, the list was endless. We discussed what being different and unique meant, and what picture some people have in their minds concerning “Nerds”. We wanted to highlight the good being done by so many who made big differences in our everyday lives yet go unappreciated. We took the word “Nerd” and made it into acronym N.E.R.D meaning - N (Nice), E ( Educated), R (Respectful), D (Determined), something that would be uplifting, bringing awareness and to stop the bullying. We worked on various clothing designs to get our concept across, the original brand was designed for kids, then we included adults.
