Mom and Me

Hi! my name is Aditi, and I started Not Same, Equal to make and claim space for everybody who feels like they have to compete against a foreign standard of being. With this brand, I hope to normalize the idea of being true to yourself and your story in order to operate powerfully in narrow cultural & urban spaces. 

I am forever grateful to my mom and my family for teaching me to believe in myself, and know that my value came from my capacity to love, pay attention, share ideas, work sincerely, face hardships with courage, and encourage those in front of me. Showing me how my value is because of who I am on the inside and not because of how I look on my outside. 

Not Same, Equal exists foremost as a reminder that we are not the shape or form of our physical bodies, but a function of the universe itself. That our bodies do not make us, we make us, and while the way you make you and the way I make me may not be the same, the value of our making is equal. Click here to read more about how we're building this business.

With love,
