About Me

My name is Melina Moussetis (hence MelinaMou) and I created a site as a fourth evolution of blogs I’ve done in the past. With those past few sites, I slowly realized that the articles I was writing had a larger purpose behind them – to inspire confidence.

I’ve honed down my topics over the years to a few things I feel strongly about – pursuing travel, pursuing your goals, and pursuing relationships. Additionally, I’ve become increasingly interested in writing my own small stories and pieces so I’ve found a home for them here as well.

Just so you know who you’re taking advice from, here’s a bit about me. I am 24 years old, I graduated a year early from Pepperdine University in Malibu with an Economics degree and I currently work in Chicago (via, LA>Shanghai>Calgary) as a software consultant. Bet you didn’t see that job description coming! I speak Spanish, Greek, and a passable amount of Mandarin. I am dreadfully impatient and am super annoying about being organized, and also about eating (HANGRY is a popular word with me). Traveling is my absolute favorite thing to do, but I also love science fiction and fantasy novels, as well as all film. Favorite type music is probably film scores, but currently, I’ve more of a podcast listener slowly working my way through the Tim Ferris podcast.

I don’t sugarcoat and I have very strong opinions, but I also pride myself on being open minded and being able to admit when I’m wrong. So if you disagree with me or want to offer a different viewpoint, just let me know. There is no room for arrogance here.
