WHO ARE WE?

Nevertheless was founded by Shaq & Maia in 2021. As uni students, we initially started selling 'You are Loved' T-shirts during COVID-19 lockdown as a side-hustle. Nevertheless, as a brand has evolved into a community and has pivoted towards advocating for equitable Mental Health outcomes across multiple contexts in addition to our apparel.
