Shaunesi Melvin was a domestic violence victim, wife of a professional European basketball player, and single mother who is constantly fighting for justice. Shaunesi Melvin no longer exists, SHAUNESI does however. She is a woman determined to empower single mothers and women to find self worth and inner strength. Her goals are to help them deal with life after adversity has gotten the best of them. She is the voice and face of Women Wear Pants Too Inc.

Melvin says her inspirations are her past. A reminder of where she shouldn’t be helped her to gain clarity on where she need to be. Her daughters she says are a constant reminder of why she has to remain strong. She is also inspired by Mariangela Del Piano, who Melvin describes as a “God sent best friend”.
