Meet the team:

Chrisangel Espinoza
I am the CEO of Inspirational T’s. I grew up in Chelsea and all my life I wanted to make a change and difference in the people around me. I hope to help the people around me to be positive and know they can accomplish what they want. My passion is basketball. I push myself to be the best I can be so I have a chance to make it to the pros.

The best part of being part of Inspirational T’s is the bond I have created with my teammates. We are like a family and encourage each other to be successful. My mentors have also been influential in motivating me to become a better person. They want me to succeed and push me to show the world my potential.

Giovany Gomez
I am the Chief Marketing Officer of Inspirational T’s. My motivation comes from having a little sister. Setting a good example for my sister is the most important thing I could do. It makes me push harder knowing that I have a younger sibling looking up at me. Knowing that she looks up to me puts a lot of weight on my shoulders, but it also motivates me to be the best I can be. Until I achieve all my goals I set for myself, I won’t be satisfied. I do not want my sister to follow every step, but I want her to make positive decisions and to do something that makes her happy in her career.

What I love most about being a part of Inspirational T’s is that my teammates and I have a very special bond not only in BUILD, but also outside of school. This makes working hard at BUILD and in school fun.

Kyle Samuel
I am the Chief Operating Officer of Inspirational T’s. One of the most important things in my life is my family, especially my brothers who have encouraged me to stay in school. One day I came home from school and I went to my room and saw that my brother had left me a drawing with his name and a few motivational notes on the back of a college notebook. I asked him why he had made this for me and he said because these were the things that he didn’t do when he was my age and he did not want me to make the same mistakes as him. He did not want me to drop out of school and he said he would always regret dropping out of school.
