Carmela Vecchione (Social media manager )

Brazilian from são paulo, she moved to New York to pursue her studies. Graduated in public relations, she is now doing her master degree in brand management at the city college of new york. 

Self-esteem, eating disorder and body shaming were part of her life. When she understood she needed to be more loving towards herself, that was when she was able forgive, desconstruct old thoughts and beliefs and empower herself. Now each day she tries to be better and spread that self-love around.
