Meet This Week’s Featured Staff Member: Melissa Ruiz


This week, we are shining the spotlight on our Social Media Manager, Melissa, to learn more about who she is and what she is listening to!

What are your favorite genres of music?

Hip Hop, LoFi, R&B, Kpop… there’s too many to list! I’m a sponge when it comes to music, just absorbing as much as I can.

Do you play an instrument, if so, what and for how long?

Sadly, I do not play an instrument. I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the drums though.

What appeals to you about music?

Music is my best friend. I can tell the story of my life through songs, and connect with others in a way that is beyond words.

First Concert You Attended?

Mana with my parents when I was 3 years old.
