Today on my Instagram I have been talking about building your empire, creating a life that you want so you can live in your purpose so I wanted to introduce my next goddess. Once you read her captions on Instagram you will fall in love with her heart and soul. When I had the opportunity to interview Melody I was in awww at her beauty, talent, heart and soul✨🌟💛. She is the example of empowerment and so much more. Ooooo and her freaking smile is sooooo contagious that you can’t help but feel the power it radiates.
I asked Melody a list of questions for my upcoming book “Empowered Women that Empower Women” and blog @bossbabequotes ! 😘 and I have included a few below:
✨”What is your favorite quote?”✨
When writing the story of your life don’t let anyone else hold the pen……
✨”What is one of your most treasured accomplishments?” ✨
To be honest my greatest accomplishment is staying true to who I am no matter what life has thrown at me. I live in a crazy world surrounded by things that people don’t normally see everyday but it never alters my heart and mind. What I value and hold true to my soul has remained the same throughout my journey. I won’t say that it’s been an easy ride because everyone has opinions and very creative ways of trying to convince you differently. I’m also an extremely open minded individual so I always listen to people’s thoughts/experiences yet something inside of me feels so strongly to protect what/who I value at all costs. Who I was created to be is something that can’t be matched I don’t always understand it but I feel it so very deeply. My journey is unorthodox, genuine, heartfelt, and passionate. As I’ve grown I’ve learned to stop questioning why I am this person and understand that it’s a true blessing. It doesn’t feel like it most of the time because it can be a lonely road with very few footsteps imprinted on my path but I wouldn’t want to be anyone else. My soul is so in tune its beautiful, honest, loving, supportive, loyal, empathetic, giving, and so much more. All I can honestly do is thank the lord above for blessing me with an uncanny ability to live out my truth.
✨ Tell us all about your love for basketball, modeling, fashion, acting? ✨
I’ve always loved b-ball. It was my first love. There was just something about teamwork and the passion i had when i played the game that made me want more. From a young age I always said the first movie I acted in would be like love and basketball. The passion in my soul when I play a character is unmatched. It fuels me and makes my heart so fulfilled. When I’m entertaining it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like it’s exactly what I’m supposed to be doing and where i need to be. Now fashion well that came later in life haha my style was like a rainbow as a kid. I honestly dressed like a homeless boy with every different color on. I guess that was the free spirit in me. I didn’t care what people thought I just threw on my clothes and went about my day. I’m still very much like that I just try to make that style look cool and edgy now. Ooo and I also color coordinate as well 🙂 ! I was never a girly girl and to be honest I don’t think I ever will be but i do enjoy dressing up and feeling like a queen. I started seriously modeling when i left my full ride b-ball scholarship at 19. I decided to leave school and take a risk traveling the world all by myself. I’ve lived all over the world now Thailand, Germany, France, NYC, LA, MIAMI… the list goes on and on. I’m also back in school now full-time finishing my Business Marketing degree because that was always a goal of mine. No matter what I wanted to have that diploma. With all of that being said I wouldn’t trade any of these experiences for the world. Modeling for 10 years now has molded me into the woman I am today and I will forever be grateful for it .

Love you all to the moon and back,
Per Melody Rae, “By doing what you love you inspire and awaken the hearts of others… and there is no beauty that shines brighter than that of a good heart 💞. I woke up feeling grateful for all that I’ve been through and where I stand today. Everything in life is connected. Our circumstances, our gifts, our trials, our journey, our imperfections, our destiny and our purpose. This is molding us into who we are meant to be. Encourage yourself and embrace every single moment. 🙏🏽”
Per Melody Rae “I’ve always been a fighter of my fairytale… This is one thing I’ll never give up on. It is natural to me. Everything about it feels right. Don’t lower your standards to fit into society’s mold. Personally I know I wasn’t made to be like everyone else and living in a tainted unrealistic universe it’s a battle but my heart & soul knows what’s real. A life full of adventure and childlike wonder with one person by my side. It’s a rarity now a days to find a woman/man with good morals and values. So continue to be the diamond that shines in a rough world and in the end you will be treasured. 🙏🏽👑🦄 ”
