Week 28: Meliza Hernandez
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a woman who wears many different hats simply because there is so much that I am interested in. When it comes to sports, you could say the same. I was a part of the basketball, track & field, cross country, volleyball, soccer, and softball team and also played other sports recreationally. Having many interests can seem daunting but it allows me to pursue everything I want to do in life! I have a passion for helping others so I am constantly finding ways to promote positivity and ensuring everyone finds greatness within themselves. My mission in life is to inspire everyone out there so they can be the best they can be.
When it comes to my career, my interests are so widespread they fall under numerous categories: music, entertainment, food, health, media and of course, sports. I currently freelance as a media correspondent where I manage social media and report for leagues and events such as the Canadian Youth Basketball League and On Point Basketball. I own a baking business (@sweetbitsto) making every occasion sweeter with sweet bits of dessert! I founded an organization (@duo.organization) that works to change the world for the better by donating to causes; and even curating events such as a Vision Board Workshop that I hosted in March for Women’s Month. I also work at Nike as a Customer Service Lead & Community Ambassador. My job allows me to specialize in providing an extra service for employees, customers and media groups. I connect with organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs, Toronto Community Housing, etc. to plan and facilitate sessions that promote a healthy, active, lifestyle for youth. Hobbies include blogging, fitness, singing, “DJ-ing” and does eating count? (@melizaeats) I am constantly working on new projects and developing ideas that will provide inspiration for many.
