Kheris and her older sister, Taylor Pollard, are co-chief executives of their company. They work together to print, ship, and oversee T-shirt orders in the garage behind their mom’s house. “Producing a T-shirt is fairly fast when you have all the materials together—less than a minute,” Kheris explains. “I keep up with the demand with the support of my family.”
“I make sure that my work and school schedule don’t conflict by keeping a planner. I also set daily goals for myself to make sure that I keep up with everything that I am supposed to do,” Kheris says.
As more celebrities, like Beyoncé and LeBron James, spotlight Kheris’s clothing line, her brand is getting bigger. It has led to more opportunities to spread her message of self-acceptance. Along with running her business and managing schoolwork, she’s modeled for a Nike ad, voiced a character in the animated Nickelodeon TV show Middle School Moguls, and signed with Columbia Records as part of the girl group Run the World. Kheris wants to keep her business growing, and her sights are set on working with Black-owned brands like Fenty or Ivy Park in the future.
