Melony Hill is the definition of a woman in control of her life and career.
Constantly counted out by society due to emotional instabilities and a traumatic upbringing stemming 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.
Over the last two years, Melony has self-published 8 books, written for multiple publications online and in print and launched a successful organization to connect other survivors like herself. The 8x author is also a Life Transition Coach, a journalist, public speaker, and in her spare time, can be found living life as a Goddess.
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.
