Event: Women of Colour Exhibition
Where: The Monroe Trust
Summary: I went to support Melissa as she was one of 6 inspiring women showcased in the Women of Colour exhibition, a portrait series. The portrait series is done by fashion portrait photographer Violetta Markelou.
I first met Melissa at a Goodwill Networking Event two years ago. She was wearing this sleeveless faux leather bustier dress with sky high heels and I remember thinking to myself, "She's so fly!" Over those two years, I've gotten to know Melissa as not only a very stylish woman but also a true humanitarian. An example: last month, in celebration of her 30th birthday, she did an act of service for 30 days. Think of it as a 30 for 30. And I followed her journey the whole way through on Instagram. It warmed my heart.
