Biography --
“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but how we react to
what happens; not by what life brings, but by the attitude we bring to life.
A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and
outcomes.  It is a catalyst … a spark that creates extraordinary results.”

Melisa Marie Jackson understood this at a very young age.  She floated
through her childhood and adolescence very determined, talented, spiritual
and happy.  She loved to make people laugh and loved to perform.  She
demanded to be enrolled in the performing arts when she was only 7 years
old.  She took ballet, modern and tap dancing for over 10 years.
Performing for relatives at recitals or family barbeques, soon won her heart
and thus her passion to entertain was born.

Melisa joined CAC Entertainment and performed in several plays and
musicals during her elementary and high school years in New York City
where she was born and raised.  During her high-school years she enrolled in
dance, drama and Mock Trial.  She participated in plays such as Chorus Line,
Bye Bye Birdie, Beauty & The Beast and The Little Mermaid.
