Melissa Victor, also known as Melly, is Co-Author of The Imagine Neighborhood episodes. She is also the creator and host of Stoopkid Stories podcast. While chasing her Broadway dream in NYC, in between gigs, she decided to take her training, creativity, and her own experiences growing up, put them all together to create a storybook podcast that features Black characters. Her background in music and theatre has allowed her to create a fun and exciting world for young kids to listen to. “I want young kids who look like me to see and hear themselves in all forms of storytelling,” she says.
