Hi Melissa, I am excited to learn more about you! Thank you for taking the time to interview with me today. Where are you from and where do you live now?
Melissa: I took a leap of faith and moved to Austin from New York. Since relocating I decided to make a career change. That change has opened up so many opportunities. I’m now a full time content creator, who focuses on lifestyle content.
When did you know you wanted to take content creation serious and how has this journey been for you so far?
Melissa: I started taking content creation seriously in March of 2022. Ever since so many amazing things have happened. So far, I’ve had the pleasure to work with some amazing brands on my journey such as; Express, Universal Studios, Crème of Nature, Dr. Jart, etc. These brands have taught me so much about my platform and how to continue to strive to reach my fullest potential.
Melissa, how would you describe yourself in one word?
Melissa: I would describe myself as one word, creative. I have visions and I then create them without hesitation. I recently added events host and curator to my resume. I’ve always loved to host and now I can share my love with others.
What are some of your future goals that you are excited about?
Melissa: In the near future, I hope to continue to partner with more brands and host big events for creators and entrepreneurs. Lately, I’ve even been thinking about plus-size modeling. The way I see it, life is short. Why not try it all?
We wish Melissa continued success and we will continue to route for her and support her journey!
