Melanie – We are Northeastern


Alumni & Student

What are you grateful for?

I’m grateful for so many different things. I am extremely grateful for life, breath and God saving me.

How do you turn a negative into a positive?

Negativity doesn’t exist in my life. Everything happens for a reason; the reason may not be what I want, but it’s what I need.

Can you describe a community you are a part of?

I belong to the African American community. This community has taught how to endure and not let nothing stop you from striving for success. I contribute to this community by striving for success and making sure I educate those who don’t understand what life has to offer.

What else would you like to share?

I would like for people to know that no matter what path you choose, no matter what life throws at you, and no matter what people say, please follow your heart, dreams and soul. Your life will be grand, if you follow those three things. I know this from personal experience.
