About Melissa

I finished my two degrees in Creative Writing and Psychology in May 2018. I am interested in helping further the arts and continuing my involvement within them. I'm also refining my skills in research and marketing.

My favorite podcasts and sources of inspiration are The Bright Sessions and Wolf 359.
