A little entrepreneur in the Bronx has been working on his art since the age of four, and now at 12 years old he is continuing to work through any challenges that come his way.
Keylen Oliver has been sculpting, drawing and creating since he was very young. Mostly inspired by anime from a young age, Keylen started creating his own characters.
"I just go with the flow, and then I open my eyes and I'm like did I do that?" said Oliver.
Oliver calls them "X3 Kings of Hope." He has made posters and clothing and has sold 120 items so far.
His mother says he was diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADHD last year. However, the diagnosis has only made Keylen work harder at school.
This also pushed Oliver to complete his own comic book. "I keep on doing it. I just wanna keep seeing people smile ... and that makes me smile. So if everyone's happy, I should be happy right?" said Oliver.
