Stranger 76/100 – Melysa

100 Strangers - MelysaStranger 76/100 – Melysa

I ran into our next stranger while she was out riding a bike and enjoying the warm weather.

Meet Melysa.

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Take your time to think. Take your time… it’s ok. Slow down a little bit. You just gotta let things go. Take your time and everything’s going to work out.”

What is your biggest challenge right now? “I don’t know exactly what I want to do with my life. I have two options, and I’m trying to figure which will be the best for me right now.”

“I was assigned here college then I had to stop doing it since my dad left my mom. He was the one putting the income in the house. So now my option is go back to my country, that’s Spain, and just go to college. It will be easier for me than trying to make it by myself here.”

What are your goals? Where do you want to be in ten years? “Graduate, have my own career, probably my own business.”

Technical Notes: I used a reflector to light up the right side of Melysa’s face which was in shadow. She helped me by holding one side of the reflector with her right hand since it was very windy.
