HI, I’M melissa

It all started with an art show when I was 4 years old and a love affair with storytelling while being raised by 2 self-made entrepreneurs.

From displaying my creative edge at the ripe age of 4, to being sung lullabies with the voice of my mom coaching aspiring millionaires as I drifted off to sleep, to being enchanted by story and how it connects people. Branding + business building was my fate. 

Here I am, 4 years old creating a
memory that would change
my life

So here's the scene…

Our entire Kindergarten class was given an assignment of creating a work of art from cut up pieces of multicolored paper that was different shapes. 

It seemed like a meaningless task until the teacher mentioned that if we come up with a unique design that stands out, our art will be framed and showcased at our school's upcoming art show.

I was a super shy little girl and did not like to do things to be in the spotlight most of the time.

No, legit the idea of standing out and doing things independently freaked me out. I was that 4 year old on the first day of kindergarten kicking and screaming crying all day for my mom to pick me up.

I remember thinking...
“If everyone could feel this, the world would be a better place."

I felt…

I felt proud to show the world how talented I am. I felt independent that I was able to do this task on my own. I felt strong that I had the creative gifts within me to create this art. I felt inspired to do this again. I felt the freedom to express myself and be celebrated. 

Because, everyone should feel valued and celebrated. 

Everyone deserves a spot on “the wall” regardless of what happened before. 

Everyone's inner gifts should be showcased and used to inspire other people. 






If everyone could feel...
