We had the good fortune of connecting with Remonde Levy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Remonde, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
I would say, knowing how to either keep going or to give up, is strictly based on how well you know yourself. Understanding your assignment in life. I personally feel that we are all placed on this earth to exercise our gifts and talents that was giving to us all by God and whoever it is you believe in. I know for me, giving up isn’t an option. The reason why it’s not an option, is based on what and who I am doing it for, who is around me, and what my why is. My why, is the biggest influence on rather I keep going or give up. For those that may read this, I pray you find what your “why” is and execute on what makes you who you are as person.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I would say that, what sets me apart from others is my unique attitude, my undoubtably committed work-ethic, and my consideration towards other peoples feelings and thoughts. Being an empath/empathic individual, you tend to look further into things. I am unfortunately an overthinking person. However, it has gotten me into certain situations that have allowed me to tap into my high frequencies and align with what it is I want out of life.

How I got to where I am now, and continuing to strive for more, is strictly based off of my work-ethic. I am confirming and confident enough to let people know that my work-ethic is unmatched. You have to be a lil weird mentally to really want to accomplish certain things in your life. It also has its pros and cons, but I believe the pros out weigh the cons because the pure intentions I bring to the table I feel will results in something greater.

This journey is not easy. To be honest I don’t want it to be easy. I don’t want anything handed to me on a silver spoon. I want to be able to earn it and still have my integrity when I go to sleep at night. However, I will not say no to unforeseen blessings that I feel god has in story for me, because the universe has a way of showing you things that can elevate you because of the work you did years ago.

One of the many lessons I have learned around the way, is to remain humbled yet always be hungry for success. To be still, and watch for people with Ill intentions, and to be quiet in a room that can possibly push you to the right opportunity.

I want to let the world know that, I am an African American Man who is doing his best to be a role model, leader, and support system. I want the world to know that I am determined to mark my name on earth with the purest intentions. I want to let the world know my name is Remonde Levy and I am from Buffalo, New York and proud to be from a city that hunts for success and grinds for opportunities.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well, knowing that I am from Buffalo, New York, we are definitely known for good food. So, I would take them to Duffy’s and get wings. I would also take them to the canel side and show them the beautiful views over in that area. We would take a trip to Niagara Falls and go shopping at the outlets near there. Maybe if time was working with us, take him or her to a Buffalo Bills game.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shout-out to my parents. Both, my mom and dad have influenced me on such a level that I don’t think anyone else has in a while. My level of respect and love towards them, has increased throughout the years. Sadly, my father passed away April 8th, 2021. However, he has now added an extra boost to my battery pack. My grind, my work-ethic, my commitment, my abilities, my love and affection towards certain people and things, are dedicated to him and my mom. My mother being the strong woman that she is, has opened up my eyes further more. Her resilience has increased tremendously since his passing and has also sparked a fire for me to continue my journey. I have had a select few people recently come into my life as well, that have showed me how to keep going as well within the past 2 years. I want to anonymously thank them. They know who they are and I love you infinitely.
