Meeting Two Complicateds: Melissa

written by Melissa July 26, 2017

Hola! My name is Melissa and I’m an islander running on french vanilla iced coffee.

Melissa - Two Complicateds

I’m a free-spirit who’s always on the road and getting herself into trouble. I’m an adventure seeker that loves heights but hates stairs. A morning person that wakes up no later than nine and takes at least two naps on the daily. I’m a cat lady that finds herself taking care of cats that never pay attention to her. I am an extrovert who needs social interactions but likes to stay in on the weekends. I’m an open book who doesn’t like to be questioned.

Now you know a little bit of who I am now, but here’s a little bit of my background story:

Did you know my city, Santo Domingo, means “Saint Sunday” in Spanish?


At the age of 17 I decided that I needed a change and moved to the U.S. to study Marketing. Four years later, I had a degree, a bunch of friends from all over the world, incredible experiences and ever-lasting memories. After graduating and working for another year, I decided to attend a few music festivals, move back home to Dominican Republic and backpack Southeast Asia. As soon as I got back home, I decided that it was time for me to get my life together and get over my quarter-life crisis.

Shortly after I found myself a job where I made a lot of money but had me under so much stress that my health was compromised. I have now quit that job, happily moved to a new place with my boyfriend, and proud to say that I’m starting my own freelance business. Don’t get me wrong, I still struggle with life on a daily basis, but I’m figuring it out as I go. Isn’t that what we are here for anyways?

What you can expect from me

You will find me very openly talking about these life struggles that range anywhere from health and weight to  relationships and sex.
