Meleshia Yattassaye relocated to Seattle two years ago this past August.  Being a mom to her daughter Aniyah who is a First Year College Student at Wake Forest University in North Carolina is her greatest reward. They have now lived on every coast around the country, with the most recent being Missouri and New York. These experiences have afforded their family to leave their footprint in various communities supporting nonprofit organizations branding their legacy. As a family they enjoy international travel, culture and fine cuisine.
