Making an impact in the world is not tied to being successful alone. It is more dependent on a willing person who will go the whole length to make a difference in the capacity they can. For Méchelle Nicole McCain, going all the way to make a difference in the world is her ultimate goal, and one thing she will do regardless of anything else is take action.
Méchelle Nicole McCain is an actress, writer and producer who has enjoyed significant success and is now doing other things to impact people’s lives. As a passionate actress, Méchelle started her career in music videos until she landed a role in the major film release, “The Fighting Temptation,” in 2003. Since then, she has been in over a dozen films and produced at least half under her production company, Topaz Films.
Beyond acting, the mother of two is passionate about keeping children healthy by teaching them to eat well and lead healthy lifestyles. She established Kids, Love and Health, a nonprofit that offers nutrition education to children all over the United States. Méchelle’s goal is to empower children and families with the knowledge they need to make healthy choices regarding their nutrition, believing that teaching children about these will play a huge role in ensuring that the next generation is as healthy as possible.
As a family-oriented person, the actress believes that building adults into role models and responsible citizens is a lifelong journey that begins from an early age. She applies this conviction to her daughters’ upbringing, empowering them to be intelligent and savvy young women. Like her journey as a young woman, she encourages her daughters and every other person she encounters to stay true to who they are and not let others distract them from living their dreams. She took an interest in acting at an early age and started by joining school plays and going on auditions, never stopping until she landed a role in a major film and went on to appear in other films after that. “I’m not afraid to do the work and also learn. I want to be great and not just a face. I am a powerhouse that accomplishes my goals and knows the sky’s the limit. You can have it all,” she said.
With her success as an actress, Méchelle hopes to make her impact known and felt globally. She also enjoys cooking, which explains her passion for healthy nutrition and the world she has done with Kids, Love and Health over the years. As she continues to prepare young children for a better future, she plans to produce more movies that give prominence to underrepresented people and write a book. She also hopes that her nonprofit continues to thrive and get more children to understand everything about eating healthy.
As someone who has constantly fought for what she wanted all her life, she hopes to be an inspiration to young girls and other young people to find their place. “When I was continuously waiting on others to give me opportunities. I decided I was going to create my own! You’re only as big as your brand. If you create it, they will come. Just remember not to give up on your dreams. If I can make it, then you can achieve the same,” she admonished.
