It’s awkward being a woman in the metaverse.
Hey there, I'm Melina a.k.a. GirI in the Verse. I've been holding a mic since diapers and ever since I could speak, I learned to love the word "no." I've had over 1000x + job rejections in the media industry, but that never stopped me from pursuing my dream!
I've worked in television for 10+ years reporting other people's stories, so I know what it feels like to be put in the spotlight. After several hundreds of interviews and conversations, I've learned that storytelling is what sets you apart from everyone else.
This is for anyone who’s ever been told they can’t or they shouldn’t waste their time. I'm your hype woman helping you start before you're ready. My story is about having the courage to say “I want more than this.”
Most nights, I spend my time joining channels on Discord, making friends and discovering NFTs on Twitter, while building a community of like-minded people as I prepare to enter the meta.
I am the host of the Don’t Forget Your Lipstick podcast based on confidence and being the best version of yourself. I share thoughtful interviews including business, chasing your dreams, web3 tips, startups, decentralized technology, NFTs while giving more women a voice in their business and in the world.
Welcome to the ₿log.
Girl, whether you’re a creative, an artist, entrepreneur or if you’re into coding, you should learn about Web3 and what’s coming! Understand how you can stand out and get financially rewarded in this space. Are you planning for this?
WTF is an NFT?
Why do they matter? What about Cryptocurrency? Or web 3.0? How will this affect me? How does the blockchain work? Is it all just a scam or is it here to stay?
If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, know that you are not alone. With so much to learn about crypto or "web3" as the cool kids are saying, I questioned everything from owning a digital wallet, to minting NFTs, dealing with gas fees and a whole lot more. However, after doing my very own research, I believe that these new technologies are here to stay.
Currently, twice as many men as women invest in cryptocurrency (16% of men vs. 7% of women), according to CNBC and Acorn’s Invest in You: Next Gen Investor survey, conducted in partnership with Momentive. But, it doesn’t have to stay that way.
Ladies, this is our time to make a difference.
