From Victim to Survivor is a company that was began by Melisa Mel in response to the need present to educate others on vulnerable populations and the challenges they each face when slavery issues come into play. Mel travels nationally and presents in Spanish and English. She feels that we are ALL part of the solution. Therefore, in her workshops and presentations, she addresses audiences of victims, perpetrators, and first responders. Mel is well known as the cargo pants girl. Her motivation in beginning her company and doing the work she does is based on her personal experiences in Spain and the USA. She feels that she was able to come out of it all and get stronger and so her encouragement is for others to do the same.
