Behind the Online Magazine

Melanin Wonder was founded by Janet Dara & Stephanie Omogun on the second of May in 2017. This online platform was born out of a vision to positively enhance the way that Melanin people are being portrayed, perceived, and promoted on (social) media.

All contents produced by Melanin Wonder are created by Janet and Stephanie first hand. The idea is to bring the world together through the similarities and atrocities that are experienced by a melanated person, in any part of the world. This is done by using topics like music, fashion, lifestyle, culture, entrepreneurship, and also by creating entertaining and educative video items.

We believe that there are many things that connect us as people. One of these things is Melanin. Melanin is a term we use for anything that creates color in humans, plants, and animals. We often divide ourselves through religion, outer appearance, and many other things.

We should focus more on the many similarities and the many shades we ALL possess. We come with different souls, different talents, and many skin colors/shades. Our aim is to unite all people through something called Melanin.

We all have more in common than we think. We want to use our media platform to highlight Positive items and positive news and rule out all the negative and create smiles on everyone’s faces.

Our passion for lifestyle, fashion, and many other things come together on Melanin Wonder. We showcase the beauty and talent of darker-skinned people from all walks of life. Because not enough platforms do it the way we do.

“That is what makes us unique.”

But what is Melanin? 

Melanin is a substance, and a word mostly used to describe a person with a darker skin tone. People with a lighter skin tone usually also have this melanin substance in their skin to make them have a little color and pigment.

This is how different amounts of the substance can create various skin hues. Indians, Moroccans, Indonesians, South Americans, and many more from similar areas have this substance embedded in their skin as well. Therefore we want to unite and celebrate our colored community, including everyone!
