Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Michelle, and I'm from the Bay Area. I am a freshman at USC and would love to get to know some more people and gain some advice along the way. I love SoulCycle, hanging out with cats, and watching TV (I can probably talk to you about any show because I've binged so many). I hope to go to law school after undergrad. I am also incredibly passionate about the environment.

Interesting Factoid

I am a barista at Philz Coffee! I've also attended a field hockey game at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
