The Name Behind the Screen

Why this name you might ask? Carmel is who I am by name, but the melanin in my skin is a part of my biological makeup, and what impacts how the world views me. My melanin has shaped my thinking and given me perspective on my place in society. Carmel and Melanin combined creates a black woman with the urge to inspire through sharing and connecting with other melanated beings.

My Journey to You

Over the years, I like many others, have used social media as a platform to speak out. I’ve shared my opinions on the many issues affecting the black community, my travel excursions, my natural hair journey, and life overall.  After years of connecting with so many people by merely sharing my journey, I realized that maybe it was time to let my voice be heard in my own space. My journey to you has been a long road, but I am finally here and I am happy that you’ve decided to take this ride with me.
