“I like to think of myself as a sponge, always trying to soak up as much knowledge and understanding as possible, and DC is a great city to do that,” says DC United superstar goalkeeper Bill Hamid, who grew up in Annandale and attended DeMatha High School before stardom hit a decade ago. Hamid adores the international vibe of the city and dons fashion-forward looks from Amiri and Off-White when frequenting his favorite hangouts like Sotto, located below Ghibellina, and La Vie. “Trends are always changing, so I keep up, but I always put my twist and my style on outfits because I aspire to be unique. This is a city with culture, swagger, style and grace. I stand proud to welcome the world here.”

When I was a kid, I was in private school, so I always prayed for the day I could wear my own clothes daily.

In three words, I would describe my fashion style as whatever I want.

The best advice I ever got was “keep your eyes on your own paper.”

If I wasn’t in my current career, I would start a company with the mission of influencing kids.

The craziest thing I ever did was skydive.

I would love to learn more about my heritage of Sierra Leone and its influence in the diamond trade.

My most trusted possession is my family.

In the next year, I hope to win a Major League Soccer championship and continue to influence the people of DC by my hard work, style and leadership.
