Hello, I am Michaela. I am a proud Italian-American born and raised in the beautiful city of Houston, Texas. I am currently a sophomore at Cy-Fair High School in Cypress, Texas. When I grow up I want to be like another famous Italian, Christopher Columbus, and change the world; that is, the world of fashion.
I want to give everyone the feeling of being comfortable in their own skin. My goal is to put a smile on every face, one outfit at a time. I intend on accomplishing my goal by studying fashion and merchandising at NYU and studying abroad in Florence, Italy.
