Melissa Dalton-Bradford

Melissa Dalton-Bradford: For Melissa Dalton-Bradford and her family, “abroad” has become home. After she and her husband Randall completed undergraduate and graduate degrees together at BYU, the pair went forth to serve in the world. Over the last 28 years, the two have raised their four children in eight different countries including Singapore, Norway, Switzerland and France. Because of this, Dalton-Bradford is fluent in four languages, and is currently learning two more. These experiences have fueled Dalton-Bradford’s artistic ventures; she’s published a number of books, articles and poetry, performed as a vocalist in multiple countries, and presented at events worldwide. Dalton-Bradford works hard to serve her community on an international level. She has brought her writing and language skills to the table as a founding member of two global organizations, one of which is Their Story is Our Story, (or TSOS), a fast-growing humanitarian community devoted to documenting and sharing firsthand stories of refugees worldwide. In her spare time, Dalton-Bradford enjoys hiking with her dog in the German woods outside her home in Frankfurt.
