“When I was younger, I was extremely shy. I couldn’t raise my hand in class, and I was terrified of public speaking! Then my mother introduced me to ballet, and on stage I found my inner strength for the first time. My career today as a news reporter, a YouTuber and as a professional emcee was built on the confidence that ballet gave me. Even today, on important events, I always bring something with me that reminds me to be strong in times of self-doubt. I hope that my “En Pointe” collection will always remind you of your inner strength and courage, and help you open yourself up to new people and experiences, just like it does for me.” Melodee’s En Pointe collection is a chic, elegant design inspired by the ribbons of ballerina “pointe” shoes and her values of strength, confidence and community.
