The Name Nylinka
Our founder, Desmond Williams, grew up in Detroit, Michigan. One day as a young man, he noticed a boy outside playing with matchbox cars. Desmond told the young boy how much he loved cars when he was that age. The young boy dashed into his small apartment and came back with a tattered notebook. He told Desmond, “These are the cars I’ve drawn.” Desmond was amazed at how great an artist this kid was. All of his cars looked futuristic. Devin, the young boy, promised he would keep drawing and said that he would one day own a car company called Nylinka. That was over 25 years ago. Unfortunately, there is no Nylinka Motor Group. Desmond adopted the name Nylinka reminding us that all children have dreams. Schools, teachers, and principals are dream catchers and dream harvesters. Their chief duty is to shepherd children to their dreams. Devin serves as a reminder that there is a Nylinka in all children, and there is a Devin in all the children.
