Melody Tavallaee, Managing Editor

Melody Tavallaee is a senior who joined Wingspan during her sophomore year. One of her greatest passions is iced coffee and you can almost always find Melody chugging unhealthy amounts of iced macchiatos while daydreaming of all the places in the world she would like to travel to. Melody is also very passionate about exploring science and medicine with hopes to pursue a career in health care in the future. Until then, she can be seen going on jogs, binge watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians, spending unreasonable amounts of money on workout clothes, and laughing at everything- even when it is unnecessary.
