MELANIE TOLEDO

KOKOIST USA Educator

"Born and raised in the vibrant landscapes of Puerto Rico, my life has been an intricate tapestry of art, science, and a deep love for nature. From my early days spent exploring the School of Arts, nurturing my passion for creativity, to eventually diving into the world of biology, where I study bachelor degree exploring the wonders of life. Later on I started another bachelor in the field of architecture pursuing my passion for art. 


Despite my scientific pursuits, my heart always finds solace in art. The canvas and the microscope have both been my companions, each offering a unique perspective on the world around me. Alongside my professional journey, I’ve embraced outdoor adventures, relishing the sun-kissed beaches and cherishing moments with friends and family, often over a glass of wine or a plate of food (I’m a foodie).


This year marked a new chapter as an educator in the nail industry. And unexpectedly, I found joy and fulfillment as an educator, relishing the chance to share my knowledge and passion with others, bringing happiness through learning.


My life’s journey continues to weave a beautiful tapestry of diverse passions and pursuits, each contributing its unique hue to the masterpiece that is my autobiography." -Melanie
