After graduating high school from the American School of Paris, Michaela entered William & Mary with a love for the French language and planned to pursue a minor in the field. Once here, her experiences in the Modern Languages department not only convinced her to pursue a major in French and Francophone Studies, but they took her academics back to France. Michaela spent the Spring of 2013 attending L’Université Lumière in Lyon, France with a focus in cross-cultural studies. Michaela plans to begin work at the State Department in the Fall of 2014 where she hopes to not only put what she’s learned here to use, but eventually call France her home again. In addition to a major in French and Francophone Studies, Michaela is pursuing a degree in Psychology and has spent her time at the College juggling both disciplines.
