The Birth of Tradish

The idea for Tradish was conceived during a trip around the world that took place about two years ago. I was in a dusty, remote corner of Marrakech, Morocco’s Medina dining on a traditional tagine when it hit me: the awe-inspiring importance of culture and tradition in my life. My most cherished memories are of celebrating various traditions and for good reason. Traditions provide community, culture, and purpose.

From day one, the mission was to “provide people with a platform to preserve, grow, and create traditions.” With no prior coding or web design experience whatsoever, I was a bit intimidated at first, but it’s as the saying goes, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

I made the founding of Tradish a top priority. Posing it to my High School as an Independent Study project, allowed me to receive credit for “working” on my passion project and granted me access to a vast network of academic mentors. After much toil and triumph, a site was finally born. Yes, it was barebones, but at least it was something. Now, after even more effort on behalf of my brother and I, I couldn’t be happier to introduce you to Version Two. Please, say hello.
