Brittany Kellman

Creator of MindMyMelanin

First and foremost, thank you for finding your way to our page. My name is Brittany Kellman, and I am the creator and founder of MindMyMelanin. Here is a little background history about myself: I am a 26 year-old Caribbean/Latina women who loves helping others! In 2016, I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a B.S in Bio-Behavioral Health and a minor in Human Development Family Studies. My major is an interdisciplinary major which focuses on biology, psychology, and sociology. My major also focused on health disparities in minority communities. As a woman of color, representation matters. People of different ethnic backgrounds, do not have access to same resources as majority populations, thus playing a significant role on our mental health. I allowed myself to suffered in silence for over five years with anxiety and depression. Enough was enough.  In March of 2017 MindMyMelanin was created. I  wanted to find a positive coping outlet for me and those in my shoes, and this was my opportunity.  Thank you
