When Melanie Eke was invited to be a contestant on a new reality show called Battle of the Ex-Besties, she had no idea what she was getting into. The show teamed up people who used to be best friends with the goal of getting through a series of challenges to win a cash prize.
Melanie and her ex-bestie didn’t win the competition, but what Melanie got out of the experience is a whole new passion for friendship and helping others to create healthy ones. She has started a series of Friendship Values Workshops for middle school and high school girls and a social media campaign on Instagram encouraging young girls around the world to post a photo with their best friend along with a caption saying what’s most important in their friendship.
Check out our conversation, take a look at Melanie’s You tube video and consider supporting her Go fund Me campaign to make her workshops available to more young girls.
