Why I founded "SOL (formerly LisN)"

Written on 11/01/2023

Hello everyone.

My name is Llewellyn Christian. I am writing this letter to explain why I founded "LisN". 

It all started when I was 9 years old, living in San Francisco with my single Mom. I want to take you on a journey back to our childhood, where imagination ruled and adventures knew no bounds. This was a time when kids were left home alone for countless hours, as single moms across America often did raising children post-divorce.

As a child, my dear friend Paul and I were inseparable. We roamed these streets and countless playgrounds of "Golden Gate Park", painting our world with games of cops and robbers, transforming into larger-than-life robots, and engaging in epic battles as ferocious dinosaurs. Paul, with his incredible wit and humor, lit up our days with laughter that echoed through the neighborhood.

What made our bond extraordinary was that Paul was deaf, yet in our friendship, we had our own language. I could understand him like no other, sharing stories and jokes that only we comprehended. It was a connection that went beyond spoken words—a silent understanding that shaped the very fabric of our friendship.

As time carried us into adulthood, those cherished memories lingered. They sparked an idea, a vision that would become "LisN." 

As the founder and CEO, my mission became clear: to create a platform where every voice, every story, finds its place.
"LisN" isn't just about technology—it's about bridging gaps, breaking barriers, and giving a voice to those who have been unheard for too long. It's about using innovation, AI, and personal connections to weave a tapestry of narratives.

I dream of "LisN" as a sanctuary for untold stories, a space where your voice, your story, matters. It's an invitation for all of us to pause and truly listen, to embrace each other's tales, and to ask ourselves, 'What will you LisN to?'

Thank you for being a part of this journey. 

Let's create a world where every story, every voice, matters.
