Ten Things About Michelle:

 

#1.  I always touch the outside of an airplane before I board.

#2.  I love anything handwritten. The writing I really like, I study.

#3.  Hawaii is my favorite place.

#4.  I am honored to live the life of a first generation.

#5.  My first job out of college was a photographer for a dot com company that sold products. Just like many in the dot com bubble, that company went under.

#6.  My grandfather risked his family’s life to feed American POW’s that were being kept prisoners in a shed behind his house in the Philippines. After the war, General Douglas MacArthur, WWII commander of the Southwest Pacific, wrote him a personal thank you note, and one of those POW’s gave my grandfather their high school ring. We still have the article that was published in the Philippine Press, published with a photo of my grandfather next to the General.

#7.  I am really good at the game of chess.

#8.  I think everyone should experience the world outside of North America.

#9.  I would love to be a backup dancer in a music video.

#10.  I can get air on a wakeboard.
