Young Urban Voices: What is Eve’s story?

Eve Richardson: I am a single parent of a handsome-wonderful little boy, Nehemiah. I was born with Spina Bifida, a Neural Tube Defect. From birth I never let anything stand in my way or stop me from what I wanted to do. Since I couldn’t walk, I crawled & BOY! was I fast.  Since I couldn’t run, I hopped. I taught myself how to swim and how to ride a bike. I graduated from college with my BA. I’ve never been without anything that I needed. It may not have been what I wanted but I am blessed. My life story, struggles, limitations etc. is how “Go Gettah” came about. I KNOW I am a “Go GETTAH”. No matter my disability, no matter that limitation, no matter being a single parent or circumstance, “shout out to the mothers and fathers raising their kids on their own.” Yes I have a physical disability and I am limited with doing stuff but I do not let get in the way of my success or happiness. I am determined to succeed for my son and everyone who said I couldn’t do it. For those who need a role model or an example to look up to. This is my testimony and I am here to share with whomever is willing to listen. “I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.” Philippians 4:13 – that’s my motto.

Young Urban Voices:Can you explain more about Go Gettah Apparel?

Eve Richardson: My friend and I was talking about how people are just living out their dreams and creating clothing lines. We said we should start one and I began to think of the name; then Go Gettah came to me, then I began to think of the definition and that came about from what was going on in my family and what I seen from others.

Noun: someone that does not let their limitations or circumstances get in the way of their determination to succeed. My friend was pursuing a dream of his own already so he could not give it his full attention, so I said you know what this describes me.

I launched GGA October 2013. The Logo is a representation of me and my son. I am the Big G and he is the little G with our backs to each other. “Go Gettah” so I saved up my disability checks and researched everything I needed to know and had my first set of inventory made and began business.


 Young Urban Voices: Why do you feel so open about sharing your story and inspiring people?


Eve Richardson: My sister made a good point about how I am a living testament. Looking back at all my baby pictures and accomplishments all you seen was God’s glory. My strength, my courage, my struggles, so I began to think well I know there are people around the world that face the same challenges as me so I must reach out to as many as I can and let them know Philippians 4:13. 

Young Urban Voices:Do you have a new line of clothing coming out soon?

Eve Richardson: Winter Apparel dropping October 20th my 1 year anniversary. You can purchase it at

Young Urban Voices: What do you want your peers to take away from your story?

Eve Richardson:I am just like you, we all face challenges but only you control your success.

Young Urban Voices: How have you turned your company into the popular and growing brand that it is?

Eve Richardson:  I have met so many wonderful people along the way of networking and being at different events and I have taken what I have seen and heard and put it to use. It is not a race thing, a disabled thing, a single parent thing: each and everyone of us that have overcome/coming their circumstances are too Go Gettah’s. So I have created a brand that can relate to many!

Young Urban Voices: What advice do you have for other inspiring entrepreneurs wanting to get started with their own business or just anyone who has to overcome an obstacle in life?

Eve Richardson: You have already been given the power to achieve whatever you set your mind to. It may not be easy, but you can do it. I am a living testament to that. When business is slow, look at it as a chance to get organized for the big flood of business that will be coming shortly.

Young Urban Voices: Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Eve Richardson: Show others better then you can tell them!!!
