About me:Hi there,
I'm Melissa Jun Rowley. I'm a journalist turned social entrepreneur. Once upon a time I covered business news at the New York Stock Exchange for CNN. Later in my career, I stood along red carpet arrival lines interviewing celebrities and filmmakers. Today, I'm harnessing tech, social media, and the power of community to bring social responsibility and positive world change to the fore. Thank you for stopping by! Let's start a dialogue. I'd love to know what causes you find important and underserved in the media, as well as how you think we can elevate ourselves and others into a higher social consciousness.
