She is also a WaterBear Alumnus, having recently completed her MA in Music Entrepreneurship. Of her experience as a WaterBear student, Melanie commented: “I couldn't have done the course if it wasn't so flexible. The work fit in perfectly around being on tour. I was able to work from dressing rooms, vans, hotel rooms and at any hour I chose”.

Why We're WaterBear...

- ‘Water bear’ is the common name for a Tardigrade.
- Tardigrades are micro creatures, found everywhere on earth.
- They are the most resilient creatures known.
- They can survive and adapt to their surroundings, even in outer space.
- Their resilience and ability to adapt and survive inspires us in everything we do. We love them.
