About Me

Hello! My name is Michaela and I graduated from Texas Christian University in May 2017. I originally created this blog to document my journey through TAPIF for the 2017-2018 school year at a high school in Clamecy, Nièvre, France. Since returning to the United States, I have graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a Masters of Social Work (MSW) and now work for the university. I use this space to document my story, my journey through life, and my travels along the way. Thanks for stopping by!

Some fun facts about me:

  • I double-majored in French and Social Work during my undergrad.
  • My MSW concentration is Leadership and Social Change – I’m specifically interested in the fields of international development and education (and a combination of the two).
  • I consider myself a novice foodie and will try anything once.
  • I am a triplet!
