Afra Black Edition (Yuliana Grasman) shared an experience with new member who has hidden talent and power at a first impression.
“That day I got a late call when I was at the highest peak of stress and pressure where my focus was to organize every member for the event that is on the second day and also to not forget anything for this event in-order to make it perfect and unbelievable , since it was the very first event for us!
Given the stress and pressure I always will find another power, vibe or energy to give my maximum to people by sharing my time with who has even the smallest interest in the Empire, Simply because i believe in everyone and in their power, sometimes some people need little guidance, support or push.
In the conversation over the call I sensed a lot of interest from Bassam and i invited him to attend with his car to our first event ever as a group and everything was on my shoulders.
At the event Bassam was a bit conservative ,but his confidence, the way he communicate, listen, act, and very supportive”
How did you meet the BE club and why did you join this club?
Actually, I did not meet the Black Edition Club before joining them, I saw a post on the social media about the Black edition Club and the name attracted and when I knew who the founder was it kind of gave me second thought that I would not be able to be part of the club and not only that but I also thought the I won’t be contacted.
Long story short, I got contacted on the same day I was asking for clarification about what the club is all about, believe it or not “ I was not even a member the call with the founder Julaina Grasman (AKA 3afra)” which was on the 10th of December 2020 and it was for sure if am not mistaken past 10:30 pm. Basically the call lasted 45 minutes or more (I didn’t know that it was a test), any way somehow she got in to my brain and convinced to attend an event and show case my car which was on the 11th of December 2020 and please note that my car was a total mess and beaten up from all side also had a broken bumper coz I never took care of it simply coz it’s a daily driver and daily off-roader.
Anyways, as I said before initially my intentions were just to understand the purpose of the club, how they compete other clubs, and what is the crazy freestyle drifter know as 3afra thinking of doing.
Do you agree with the BE club’s color car project?
Totally Agree, especially that I understood the vision of the founder and the goal, having a color categories will enable Black Edition to be independent and also have a larger talent pool.
So far, what has been the best experience you have had as a member of the BE club and why do you think it is the best?
That’s a hard one, and yes yes yes I know I know most of you will say marketing talk and Bla Bla Bla, well I will just say one thing to you guys that just said that “Talk is Cheap”.
Just before I start sharing my experiences, just wanted to let you all know that I actually work and live in Abu Dhabi, Lucky Lucky I was asked to move to Sharjah for a project that would last 60 + days.
So 10 days down the line between Dubai and Sharjah I came across Black Edition and found my self around the family almost not twenty four hours, but almost forty plus hours nonstop.
And yes I would like to mention, I got kidnapped or I would say it in another way I intentionally walked out of work during working hours just because of a call from the family (Black Edition) where I was asked in a very polite tone “can we pass by you in an hour” that was at 12:30 pm and I finish work at 4 pm, well it shocked me that I couldn’t say no and I didn’t even blink when I said yes sure pass by…. Only later one I realized that I have never stopped my work for anything no matter what it was.
Well that day was epic, left work and being picked up by the family who brought my car from Titan Performance which basically wanted to collaborate with Afra but what shocked is that she took her personal collaboration that would benefit her and gave it away to member which ended up to be myself since the collaboration involved a Radflo suspension Kit for a Nissan Patrol and so the project was installed and tuned on my car.
That is one thing only, and that is one of the smallest things relating to the support that I have received is simply unbelievable. And I don’t shy out from speaking about it, basically I have had anger issues and was put on medications for the past 3 years where I have never stopped them simply because if I skip a pill it would be no good for my self or the people around me.
Anyways long story short, basically I was in a very dark place especially that I had an extreme fear that I would miss a pill or forget to take a pill, that all ended when the Boss Afra got me over excited when I dropped my Nissan to get the chrome delete done, too excited that I forgot the pill box in the car which was left in Ajman for almost 4 days.
The four days were very scary to me I even warned they family, to not mind me if I over react or if they see me pissed off and if I explode, all took the advice expect Afra and someone who lies to their gym trainer about not eating. Basically I had no comment but god bless them because of them I can proudly say the am off the medications since.
What do you think of the BE club? Would you recommend it to your friends?
Not because my Nissan got upgraded…. But the lessons I learn every day when am around the family, I just wish that the others share some quality time with the family (black edition) and not think of it as a car club, because its not and I guess that why am not leaving no matter what… and I hope that what I said in the previous sentence is understood by someone….
Are you part of any special initiative or project within the club?
Yes, a very special one being part of the family that’s one and the second I had discovered today that you cant judge some taste in music unless you get in long drive with them.
Also, being thrown as an Admin after 2 event which was like …. Hello???? What is going on here???
I wasn’t ready…. (Kevin heart **scared voice), well i felt bad because it was supposed to be a surprise but my stupid attention to details and speed of seeing things and my brother Mr. Subaru the surprise got messed it up.
And finally this onething that I think most wont get it, but the automotive soul inside me was killed almost 11 years ago for many reasons and I was not able to start it, but the soul has been brought back to life, and yes am getting in trouble for it cause am not allowed to get close to the motorsports but am taking the hit for the family and will always be there for The Black Edition and Black Edition Family.
