In a world that measures success by the amount of wealth one generates, seldom do we hear trailblazers pursuing greatness for the sole purpose of pushing advocacies or materializing an altruistic vision. Although success is often equated with wealth or fame, there are still some exceptional individuals who take it upon themselves to redefine triumph by grounding themselves on more selfless pursuits. For Brian Femminella and Travis Chen, they believe that a person has genuinely achieved success when one possesses the unparalleled capacity to help. As 20-year-old CEOs and co-founders of a trailblazing company, Brian and Travis have come a long way to make their dreams a reality.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to shake the world to its core, this global health crisis has truly tested the waters around the world. One aspect that took the most hit from this unfortunate event is the psychological wellness of people. More and more people are getting stressed with everything going on, forcibly pushing many of them towards the edge. And as the pandemic continues to take a toll on mental health, Brian Femminella and Travis Chen saw the need to develop a company that addresses mental health issues. Thus, these brilliant young minds created SoundMind.

Passionately created with a noble purpose, SoundMind is a mental health app that helps people cope during these trying times through music therapy. It serves as a platform that people can use to assist them in times of distress and deal with post-trauma. In other words, SoundMind boasts colors that promote overall psychological well-being using the power of music.
Unlike other mental health apps, SoundMind is in a league of its own. This extraordinary company takes pride in the brilliance of their research-based methods – ranging from thanatonsonics to neuroplasticity and cultural competency to binaural beats. Besides its demonstrated prowess in the field, this leading authority of the relationship between the mind and music therapy is composed of equally passionate college students and fresh graduates equipped to transcend limits and break barriers as they set things in motion for the company.
But behind the company’s promising milestones lies two founders who made it their mission to create a platform that speaks volumes of their passion for helping others. As individuals whose visionary purpose is to make the world a better place, Brian Femminella and Travis Chen have taken it upon themselves to dedicate their lives to the service of others. As a matter of fact, these exceptional co-founders have spent most of their lives while making a difference by joining entities that serve as vessels of transformation. Continuing to catalyze change across the world with a sincere heart and a tenacious spirit, Brian and Travis are set to help others cope in these challenging times.
