Michelle Carmela

Founder&Director of Once Upon An Eden

Michelle was born into a Mafia family and is a survivor of severe abuse and human exploitation. For more than 26 years, she has helped many people leave abusive situations and the life of organized crime. While continuing her own healing, she has been helping people over come their traumas in order to find their own survival stories. In these same years, Michelle Carmela has made every effort possible to educate the public about human exploitation and abuses here in the United States, and what it is like to grow up in the organized crime culture. Michelle Carmela also advises organizations in their design of safe houses and the influence organized crime has on governments as well as the every day lives of citizens world wide. 

All of these efforts have led to the founding of Once Upon An Eden, an educational and networking website for citizens and foundations to see the multi-layered and multi-faceted complexities of human exploitation and organized crime’s influence upon our every day living and world events.

Inspired by Steve Graham, (60, 2012) 
Australian Human Rights Activist who once said
“I want to live to make a difference,
not live a life of indifference.”
Steve trained a group of activists online from 2009-2011 with the belief that music has the power to inspire, educate and unite people to take action.
