Kashiff's story

On April 24, 2015, I knew my life would change forever. That was the day that I decided to stop wishing for a better life and work hard to create one.

My name is Kashiff and I grew up in the inner-city of Pittsburgh, PA. Raised by my secretary mother, and police officer father, I always knew that I was different. I graduated from high school with college credits already earned, and earned a language proficiency in Japanese. I always dreamt of being someone who could put a smile on anyone's face, no matter what they were experiencing. I loved the feeling of knowing that I could make someone happy.

In 2nd grade, I wanted a new 10-speed Huffy bicycle. I repeatedly asked my father for the bike, but he said that it was too expensive. After being told no constantly, I decided to make a deal with my father. He would pay half the cost if I could come up with the rest. To raise the money, I used my lunch money to buy bulk candy and sold it to my classmates. In a few months, I had raised half of the money! My classmates were happy because they had candy, my dad was happy because he only paid half price for the bike, and I was happy because I earned something and made others happy.

By realizing that I could identify a common problem and create a simple solution, I was confident in my hopes of helping people. On April 24, 2015, I decided to create a mobile dating application focused on videos, to address the problem of dishonesty in online dating. With your help, I know that I can create an honest, compatible match for anyone, and help people be truly happy.
