Melony Hill Is The Definition Of A Woman In Control Of Her Life And Career. Melony created and executed the Crazy Like A Fox Tour, the first-ever National speaker series focused on bringing awareness to the mental health of black women. Through her love and passion, Melony has expanded the conversation on black mental health.
Constantly counted out by society due to emotional instabilities and a traumatic upbringing stemming from domestic violence, sexual assault and more, Melony has reclaimed her life and inspires others to do the same. In 2010, Melony was diagnosed with a slew of emotional illnesses such as depression, anxiety disorder, PTSD, and dissociative identity disorder. To add to her daily struggles, Melony also was diagnosed with chronic pain from Fibromyalgia. Never one to let an obstacle deter her from her goals, Melony has thrived, despite her mental, physical and emotional limitations.
Her organization, Stronger Than My Struggles, aims to heal through the written and spoken word, offering resources, support, and services to survivors from all walks of life. Being declared legally emotionally disabled hasn’t stopped Melony from thriving, pursuing her passions or career goals. She hosts a series of workshops in the Baltimore area including a free weekly therapeutic writing workshop, Writing for My Sanity, which she named after her book of poetry. Taking her mission to connect others with their purpose seriously, Melony leads the Baltimore branch of the Freelancers Union, a national organization with over 350,000 members nationwide. In September 2018, she was voted National Curriculum Lead for the Freelancers Union nationwide.
