You called me that when I was 4 years old.

It has been all gas and no brakes since then.

You tried to medicate it. You tried to treat it with therapy. You tried to pray it away.




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
