He is young, gifted and Black.

Bridges, then a fourth grader at Rozelle Elementary School located in Downtown Memphis, started his career as a fashion designer at the age of 9 in June of 2011 with his exclusive line of Mo’s Bows.

He has been a guest on the Steve Harvey show and has been featured in British GQ, in Oprah’s O’Magazine, and in Forbes.
