Mel Thomas is a woman who was born into an extremely violent home. She grew up not only watching her father physically abuse her mother but was also regularly abused by him as well. Mel went on to find herself in several abusive romantic relationships until she fell in love with martial arts, which ended up changing the course of her life. Mel is the founder and CEO of the KYUP! Project, a revolutionary self-worth and self-protection program created to break the cycle of violence against women and children. She has worked with more than 10,000 students and young women and is one very passionate woman who is on an incredible mission. Stacey and I chatted with Mel about all of this and lots more in this episode of The Change Up brought to you by TOM Organic.
