I am Luckie. I launched Right Mind Athletics in 2019 with my then 13-year-old daughter, Jaiya Devi जय देवी, to design INSPIRED custom apparel for youth athletes.
Jai is an Elite Athlete—100M, 200M, 400M, Triple Jump, and Long Jump—so we understand how vital establishing and maintaining the right mindset is when training and competing.
We also know how important it is to protect that mindset in day-to-day life.
For the past 23 years, I have worked as a Technology Program Manager, delivering many products and brands successfully to market for industry leaders. Unfortunately, in recent years I have increasingly been impacted by age, gender, and race bias in the workplace.
In September 2019, I was unexpectedly fired by a manager who referred to me as a "marathoner among sprinters," quickly determining I was not the "right cultural fit" for his agency. As a result, Jaiya, Justis, and I lost our home and our car shortly after.
Right Mind Athletics was a means to reclaim my power and voice. I am as creative and tech-savvy as ever. I am a proud marathoner; trained to run and complete challenging [life] races.
Right Mind Athletics was also created to show Jaiya she too possesses the ability to overcome ANY challenge she faces, on or off the track.
We know how to go to the well. We know how to persevere. Our goals, talents, and dreams will not be so easily discarded.
Right Mind Athletics is dedicated to supporting athletes the RIGHT WAY and will soon extend our support and encouragement to families working to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
We are here to FUEL DREAMS. Ours. Yours. Theirs. TOGETHER.
Luckie and Jaiya Devi जय देवी
