Sidisse Melda

Pronouns: She/Her

Why did you join the MYC ?

One day I realized that by not working to find the solutions to all of the problems I saw in the world I was slowly becoming a part of the problem. That just didn’t sit right with me so I started looking into ways that I could advocate for the things I believe in and for the people who are not in a place to do so themselves.

What three words best describe you? 

Passionate, brave, ready

Who inspires you? 

A friend of my mom truly does inspire me. She has always been ready to help support me through my mental health journey, and just as a friend. I know I can always call her if I need someone to talk to at any time. But what inspires me most is how she is doing this all well battling recurring bouts of cancer.

What is an issue/movement that is important to you? 

A big issue that is important to me is how mental health is not prioritized in schools

If you could eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
