What's up! My name is Melissa, but most call me Mel. My close friends call me Melyo. What interests me the most is music, singing, writing, reading, yoga, pilates, running, working out, mangos, the color yellow, photography, talking (even though I always come off as quiet and shy), and occasionally a cup of coffee. I'm a pretty indecisive person who has changed their major twice and added a minor within 5 semesters here at Towson. I'm originally from Prince George's county and have never been outside of the states, which is why I have such a strong desire to travel and explore. If my dream of becoming a singer never happens, my next dream is to become a photojournalist and travel the world. Here at Towson, I am preisdent of Her Campus, which is an online magazine publication. I am also a member of Lambda Kappa Tau, which is a media production society. If I had to only listen to one artist for the rest of my life, I would be torn between Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. I'm one of those people who actually mean it when I say I listen to a mixture of all kinds of music, and that's probably because of how I grew up, with a variety of music tastes from various people. Although, if I had to pick my favorite genre's, it'd most likely be R&B, soul, and jazz.
The list below consists of links to certain things like my online photography portfolio, some of my favorite songs and music videos, and some poetry I enjoy.
