Melu Ortiz is a senior fitness instructor with Soul Cycle and has been fighting student debt with Bold.org since December 2020. She believes in the importance of encouraging minority artists in order to give them the opportunities to express themselves. Minorities have had a significant impact on the art world. In the wake of social injustice, Melu finds it critical to support their creative ambitions toward a more opportunistic future. This scholarship fund will help students from minority backgrounds who have big aspirations for their artistic careers.
