More About Melissa
Melissa Camilleri is the Founder and Creative Director of Compliment® Inc., a lifestyle brand that seeks to encourage, inspire, and educate. Though it started off as a college scholarship fundraiser for Melissa’s students, Compliment has grown to be an online destination for people seeking “gifts that uplift,” and give back.
Since founding the company in late 2011, Melissa has set aside 5% of all product sales to the Compliment Scholarship Program and has raised tens of thousands of dollars in educational funding for girls who dare to dream big and break the cycle of poverty in their families through education.
Ever the teacher at heart, Melissa is the founder of the 21-Day Instacourse (helping others gain massive exposure on Instagram on a shoestring budget) + many other workshops and trainings, where she helps people with the audacity to dream a little bigger, find their unique gifts and talents, and spread their messages to the world. She lives and loves in Sacramento with her husband Nick and their babe due next month, March 2017.
