Description

Melody Ehsani is the visionary and entrepreneur behind ME.—a brand specializing in jewelry, footwear, and clothing whose core beliefs are rooted in unity, equality, and justice. Over her boundary-breaking career, she’s collaborated with countless brands and cultural luminaries, including Lauryn Hill, Nike, Erkyah Badu, Reebok, Sanrio, the Wu Tang Clan, Footlocker, and many more. 

In today’s conversation, Melody shares her truly incredible story about finding out she was pregnant and becoming a mother at 42 after thinking this path was no longer in the cards for her. She also talks about raising a son, the difficulty of trying to combat gender roles at home, and how this new chapter of her life has caused her to rethink her career path.
