Hello beautiful souls! My name is Melanie and I am the proud owner of VividBloom, located in Riverside, California. My creative journey began in May 2014 as a hobby and has evolved into a successful business. Read on to learn a little bit about me and my journey.
I am lead by my ambition and I strive to make the most of the time I have here on Earth. I crave new experiences, I long for new friendships, I am eager to learn, and I desire growth. I am in the process of becoming fully self-aware and filling my life with peace, love, joy and passion.
I have known struggle and that is what inspires me to be all that I can be. I know that I have unlimited capacity to make my life whatever I wish it to be. Life has thrown many bricks in my direction with the attempt to watch me trip and fall. Instead I have taken each one and built a strong foundation on which I will continue to build myself up.
My shop has truly been a blessing! Without it I would not be where I am today. Thanks to the amazing souls who purchase our items I have been able to attend school and have recently graduated from UCR with a BA in Psychology. That will not be the end of my college career as I hope to attend graduate school in the near future. This shop has also helped keep a roof over my family’s heads. Due to hardships my parents lost their house a few years ago. I was motivated to give my family a place to call home again and bought my first home at the age of 20. It was a tremendous amount of hard work and effort to overcome the many obstacles along the way but with the support of others I was able to make this almost impossible dream come true. I am now working three jobs as well as running my shop in order to support myself and my parents. All throughout college I worked as a receptionist at a hair salon which I am still doing part time. I am also a behavioral therapist, at two different clinics, where I work with children who have been diagnosed with autism. I am so fortunate to have jobs that I truly enjoy. After I complete graduate school I hope to make a career out of working with kids with disabilities. My goal is to have a positive impact on the world and I will do that one child and one family at a time.
I want to genuinely thank my customers from the bottom of my heart for all they have given me. While you may not know how much it truly means to me, know that you have all helped shape the person I have become and the person I will become. I hope that one day I will be able to give back and have such an impact on someone else’s life as you have had on mine.
I take pride in how far I have come and I have faith in how far I can go.
