Amaury Abreu is a student at Harrisburg Area Community College who recently participated in the PennLive's reader panel discussion on the options of post-high school education.
In addition to being articulate he is entrepreneurial, having started a clothing line with his sister, Anaury, earlier this year that's headquartered in Lebanon County. This line of clothing is called Impera, which means "victory" in Latin, he told the Lebanon Daily News in a story published in mid-March.
"We want to help people to understand that everyone can succeed in life and everyone can do good, so that's why we created this clothing line," he said at the time. They began selling their line of sportswear online at their website on Feb. 25, operating a business called Legatus Culture Co.
The two are about to launch a social campaign utilizing the phrase, "Don't shoot me, I'm important," selling shirts with this phrase and the company's logo in it. Amaury said that the siblings are aiming to use this campaign to "bring positivity to all this horrible events and the way we will help with this issue is by giving 10% of the funds that come from these T-Shirts to the families affected by the recent mass shootings," he said.

A brother and sister from the city are introducing their new clothing brand to Lebanon County.
“The name Impera, which is the name of the clothing line, means ‘victory’ in Latin,” Amaury Abreu Jr., who co-created the brand with his sister Anaury, said. “We want to help people to understand that everyone can succeed in life and everyone can do good, so that’s why we created this clothing line.”
The Abreu siblings began selling their line of sportswear online at their website on Feb. 25. Their company name is Legatus Culture Co.
“The first collection, our winter collection, focuses on sports – we have hoodies, (jogging pants) and leggings – and we will have a pullover jacket with an embroidered logo on it (in our spring collection),” Amaury Abreu Jr. said.
Abreu was inspired to start his clothing line after a friend told him about his own clothing brand.
“When he told me (about his business) I thought it was interesting that it was something that could be done that easily – it wasn’t something that just Nike and big companies can do,” Abreu said.
