As a child and teenager, Michelle endured a series of events that was nothing short of soul crushing. She faced sexual abuse as a child and kept it a secret over the years. At the age of sixteen, she acquired a brain disease that rendered her blind. Her so-called friends bullied her at school, and she fell into a deep depression. To deal with all her traumas, she turned to drugs, alcohol, and self-harm. She even contemplated suicide. Thankfully a miraculous turn of events saved her life, and now this remarkable young woman faces all her adversity with such positive energy that it’s become infectious and humbling to all that know and love her. Part of the "Teens 101" series. Please note this title discusses mature themes.
