Melody loves to illustrate, paint, draw, write, and experiment with all sorts of art mediums. One of her favorite types of art is emaki, and one of her favorite memories is decorating her kindergarten classroom as Hogwarts using handmade drawings and crafts made by students. Melody was a teacher in both East Los Angeles and San Francisco. As a teacher she realized the power of technology and how it could also be used as a creative outlet, so she decided to pursue web development and now teaches computer programming for a nonprofit.
Melody’s passion is teaching and empowering others by sharing what she has learned. She started an arts and crafts program at a children’s hospital and also taught at San Quentin State Prison. Melody hopes to inspire youth to explore and expand their creativity through web development, writing, and art.
