Hey everyone! My name is Mellisa Leong, but you can call me Meli. I am a rising Leo, I use she/her or ve/vem pronouns, and I identify as queer. I grew up in San Mateo, CA, and was placed into foster care when I was 13. I recently moved to Salinas. I am a student intern with Friday Night Live, and I am currently going to Wayne’s College of Beauty. I am so ecstatic to work for the Epicenter because I really enjoy working with youth and I care about making positive changes within my community. I can’t wait to dive in and support in any way I can.
