Makeba Giles is Founder, Writer, and Creative Director of MELISASource.com, and inspirational blog that gives readers life, culture, and current events…the positive way. She is also a married mother of 4 very busy children ranging in age from college student to kindergarten. Makeba uses her presence in social media to share her sincere love for life and all things inspirational. A self-proclaimed “down-home girl” who does pretty much everything in heels, she is (as she calls herself) “A little bit of Country, and a little bit of Rock-n-Roll”. A woman of many hats, she is oftentimes forced to be a true Jack of All Trades; and she does her very best to master them all (or at the very least be somewhat good at them). You can find Makeba on her blog, as well as Facebook and Twitter.
