Giovanni Medellin

I began my journey at Prairie View A&M University. I joined an organization known as Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. and we needed flyers for different events throughout our campus. We did not have a designated graphic designer, so I picked up the task and attempted to make my first flyer. It was not the best flyer, but it was the beginning of my journey.

Liv Free

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. Growing up in such a large family of 5 aunts and 16 cousins where mostly everyone is musically inclined, it was hard to stand out. I knew I had a gift, but being the granddaughter of a Pastor, I was also taught that gift was only to be used in the church. My grandparents unknowingly created a safe haven and an open space for me to not only grow up in a close family structure but within the community as well. On Sundays, it was The Church. Read more>>

I immediately fell in love, and started teaching others how to meal prep healthy meals on a budget. Read more>>
