Meet The Ladies

“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” – William Shakespeare

We embarked on our brilliant friendship journey in Georgia History class in the 8th grade, and we never looked back. For more than eight years, we have shared experiences with each other to offer support and encouragement. A few years ago, we had an idea to let other women into the sisterhood that we started back in middle school. And that was how Becoming Brilliance was born.

A woman that is becoming brilliance knows that she has a purpose in life, and is trying to discover what she was called to do. She understands that she has a role to play in the advancement of humanity, and by stepping into her light, she gives other people permission to do the same.

We welcome you to read about our journey as we navigate through life as twenty-something year old women pursuing our passion and purpose. Stay tuned for stories and advice on how to find your career happy-place, embrace the lessons from your dating stories and step into your brilliance.

Join us on this journey…


Hi, I’m Teyonna!

I’m a twenty-something year old dreamer and doer living what I love. When I’m not slaying as a public relations specialist at work, I can be found pinning slow cooker recipes on Pinterest, dancing to 90s R&B jams, or planning my next travel adventure. I am passionate about helping other women live a rewarding life, education, personal development and the advancement of Black people.  Since we’re friends now, feel free to call me Tee or Shorty like Melissa says. 🙂


Wise beyond my years…beautifully flawed …but ever evolving…Hello all, I’m Melissa!

As a recent Masters graduate, I’m currently on the journey of defining my next career move and establishing myself as an asset in the field of communications after being a professional student most of my life. But that’s what I love most about me…I’ll never stop yearning to learn. Embracing my new role of entrepreneurship as I embark on my journey as an aspiring professional photographer.  I’m intrigued by all things health and beauty…a music enthusiast…certified hopeless romantic…and a foodie with desires to travel the world.  I simply covet being a helping hand and listening ear to many…it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Let’s grow together!

We are the voices behind Becoming Brilliance
