Melinda Blunk is all too familiar with adversity and overcoming one’s obstacles. Born as a crack baby to a mother who tried to abort her, Melinda was told she would never be able to walk. Through a miracle and her stubbornness, she can run and play sports. She was adopted, struggled with suicidal thoughts, was homeless, kidnapped, physically, sexually and verbally abused throughout differents parts of her life. Melinda came out a better and stronger person. And that’s just a drop in the bucket. She was kept here for a reason. She is a perfect example for people about bettering their lives no matter what the circumstances. She is attending school in Missouri and then has high aspirations of getting a Master’s at Columbia Journalism School in NY. She has a book that will be available on Amazon called Why? I’m Just A Normal Girl…Letting Go, and Letting Life…Feel free to visit her website and book her to speak at http://www.melindablunk.weebly.com.
