BACKGROUND ON THE 'JUST LIKE YOU' SERIES: The people selected to participate in Just Like You represent a select group of innovators from a diverse range of backgrounds and interests, but who are connected by their abilities to overcome obstacles and learn life lessons along the way. From designers to athletes, chefs to artists, these people pursued their dreams in spite of the challenges and have become highly respected in their fields.
The latest installments of Citizens of Humanity's 'Just Like You' series features two icons, each in their own field of expertise: the legendary tattoo artist, Mark Mahoney, and Michelin-star French chef, Michel Rostang. These inspiring gentlemen speak about the meaning of hard work, being destined to being the master of their craft, and staying true to themselves along their journeys.
