Mrs. Mellissa Qaiesi
Mellissa joined Taekwondo when she was four years old. Like her sister, Mellissa didn’t want to advance in belts alone so she took a break also.
When Mellissa came back to the karate, they were both motivated to earn their black belts together in 2010. Mellissa and her sister tested in Hammond and Berwyn and passed the test to become 1st degree black instructors.
Mellissa’s goal is to teach her daughter, Mayar, 2 years old, and her children to come. Mellissa now attends Purdue Calumet University and is majoring in pharmacy.
