**Aired Wednesday, May 26th on Facebook Live, Twitter, or LinkedIn at 10:30 am EST**

Intisar Bashir was born in Columbus OH. She comes from a family of entrepreneurs and has always desired to follow in their footsteps, namely her father.

Browndages is the brainchild of the husband and wife duo, Rashid and Intisar. Once they realized that bandages were supposed to be flesh tone and noticed none of the bandages they purchased in stores matched the skin of anyone in their family, they decided to launch Browndages! On top of the bandages, Browndages also started creating pajama sets with the same characters and several children’s books. Bashir said the representation has been transformative for her children and others. “Seeing themselves portrayed in those images has really stuck with them and put the idea in their mind that, ‘You know what, I can do this. I can attain this. This is something I would like to aspire to as I grow,’” she said. Intisar currently resides in Columbus with her amazing husband and co-owner Rashid Mahdi and their four children.
