Born and raised in sunny Southern California, Melin had the pleasure of pursuing a degree in Linguistics from the University of California. After moving to Miami, she turned those critical thinking skills towards software development. People always used to ask, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Melin’s response was: “I would love to get paid to learn!” (Typical Ravenclaw, I know). Now she’s living the dream, working with technology that is constantly changing, at a company that allows her to share her love for learning and education in a way that empowers other students. In her free time, Melin loves playing sports with her friends, video games, and naps with her cat.
