About Michele Lee Evans
Michele Lee Evans is a native of Washington, DC but currently residing in Houston, TX. Michele married her best friend, Jeffrey "Gunny" Evans on November 10, 2001. Michele currently holds her M.B.A with a double minor in Human Resource Management and Computer Information Systems from Strayer University, Washington D.C.
In 1998, Jeffrey and Michele started making gift baskets to sell on holidays. The gift basket business was a success. In 2005, after designing her own jewelry for a Marine Corps ball and receiving rave reviews, Michele turned to her real passion of creating one-of-a-kind, eccentric, handcrafted jewelry into Mileeva Designs, an acronym of her full name.
After battling with her own struggles with past abuse, bullying and domestic violence, Michele started The F.A.A.B Foundation (Fighting Against Abuse & Bullying) in December of 2015. Michele speaks to youth around the country to tell her stories of abuse and share affirmations of life worth through her first self-published book, R.O.A.R (Rude Opinions Aren't Reality). Michele not only speaks to youth about the damage cause by bullying, but she is also a motivational speaker for women who have suffered abuse as well as an entrepreneur motivator.
Michele is a published Author and currently working on a collaboration book for entrepreneurs entitled "From Employee to Entrepreneur: The Journey of Empowerment" with renowned Author and Coach, Taurea Avant. Michele is also leading an abuse survivor’s collaboration book entitled “I Am A Survivor: Stories of Tragedy & Triumph”. Michele designed the book's cover, created the graphics, designed the book's website, did the editing and published the Survivor book. She has designed several websites for her own business and decided to add "Creative Solutions" to her resume and offer these services to those who need them.
Michele the host of the show Mileeva Speaks on Spreaker every Wednesday from 5:30 pm – 7 pm CST. The show's platform is Music, Networking and Talk, where they discuss current issues affecting the nation and the African American community.
Michele's favorite quote is from motivational speaker Les Brown and the inspiration behind the title of her Foundation book "R.O.A.R": "Never let someone else's opinion of you become your reality."

"Fighting Against Abuse & Bullying"
As an abuse, bullying, domestic violence and suicide survivor, Michele Lee Evans seeks to help others get over the pain of their past, and help those still in their situations come away from them.
While Michele's main focus with The F.A.A.B Foundation is anti-bullying, a serious situation inflicting our youth today, she also understands the importance of reaching out to those who have suffered other forms of physical, sexual or verbal abuse as a child or adult.
Michele has written the book, "R.O.A.R (Rude Opinions Aren't Reality)" to teach parents the signs of bullying, how to approach a variety of scenarios, as well as focus on "self-worth" and "positive affirmation" of our youth to make certain forms of bullying ineffective.
She is also leading a collaboration book as a co-author entitled "I Am A Survivor: Stories of Tragedy & Triumph", a book that focuses on emotional, physical, sexual abuse, rape, domestic & family violence, bullying, depression , anxiety and suicide as experienced by each co-author.
Michele brings healing and empowerment to every conference or workshop she lends her voice to.
