Epic Truth Tee No. 4 : Teen Designer Bente






Bente is a 17 year old artist from San Francisco, California. She lives off of drawing, music, and anything creative. Her favorite munchies are french fries and Nutella on waffles. She designed a “Find your Epic” graphic for our Epic Truth Tee contest. You voted for her design and we made it into an Epic Truth T-Shirt! Learn more about Bente in the exclusive interview below!

Q: What does your Epic Truth Tee message mean to you?
A: The message, “find your epic” reminds me to keep growing, to keep searching for my personal truth. Everyone has their own mission in life and the possibilities are endless. We can’t be confined or restricted when looking. The crescent moon symbolizes distance, space, and the limitless places where girls can find themselves.

Q: Why do you think it’s important to express yourself?
A: I think it’s important to express yourself because everyone is an individual with the right to be different and be accepted for it. Society would be boring if everyone was the same, so be different and show it!

Q: When and where are you the happiest?
A: I’m the happiest when I’m seeing one of my favorite bands live with friends who also love that band (AKA Tame Impala with my best friend).

Q: What are you most afraid of?
A: I’m most afraid of the world still not being a peaceful place when I’m old.

Q: What words or phrases do you most overuse?
A: I mean, I’m from the Bay Area so obviously “hella” and “dank” but I probably use “bruh” more than necessary. At least I’m almost over my “dude” phase!

Q: What are 5 the things you could never live without?
A: Art, music, my Doc Martens, tea, friends (the TV show and my real friends).

Q: What do you spend a lot of time thinking about?
A: I spend a lot of time thinking about life and if I’m happy with the way I’m going through it. So mostly I spend time self reflecting.

Q: What girl(s) or women do you admire most?
A: Angelina Jolie and Eileen Kelly
