TWNTY1 Was founded by Tuan Syams in 2019. As a young child he always got the nickname 21, because some people had a difficult time pronouncing his name. He was born in Amsterdam, but grew up in the city Almere. Since a very young age he already knew what he wanted to do in his life. He wanted to help other people out, but didn’t really know how.
When he was 19 he decided to quit his school to follow his dream : helping people.
At first he was scared that he would disappoint his parents, but to his surprise they actually supported him. His parents only wanted him to be happy and to never give up on his dream. So he decided follow his dream with the support of his family and founded TWNTY1.
TWNTY1 is a company about telling stories. We tell stories through different mediums such as : clothing, film, photography and music. We believe that everyone has a story to tell and that we could all learn from these stories. Our goal is to listen and understand your story, to bring people together and by making them feel less alone on their journey. We’re here to support you on your journey and we’re honoured that you’re a part of ours.
We understand that we are very different and unique in many aspects, but we believe that we should not forget that we also share a lot of similarities. We want to create bridges between culture, race, gender and religion so we could understand and respect each other better. We believe that we could bring people together with storytelling.
