What’s on her mind today:
It’s so nice outside!

What  she’s currently working on:
Being 20.

What she thinks there is too much of, and too little of:
There is too much negativity. I think people are naturally inclined to see the bad side of things, and it’s sad. There is too little genuine appreciation of the arts. Everything has to be analyzed and criticized and canonized and you have to know where this paint was manufactured and the Greek roots of this word because it all signifies something deeper… and before you know it, you’ve forgotten what the color blue looks like.

With whom she would like most to go on a tête à tête:
Diplo! It just seems like he’s got a really good creative energy going on. Plus, he’s super handsome.

What  good energy means to her:
Being aware of your context.

What she would do if she were the president:
Have panic attacks on the reg. I’m not composed enough for that much responsibility, at least not yet.

Her most striking moment:
That’s a cool question. Maybe the first time I read “Nausea” by Jean Paul-Sartre. I was impressionable. That was a life-changer.

Her earliest memory:
Looking up at a birthday cake.

What she considers a fashion faux-pas:
Anything that is both ill-fitting and expensive.

What cracks her up:
Workaholics! I’ve seen every episode about five times. It’s totally my sense of humor. I love those guys.

What kind of movement she would like to start:
A movement of awareness. Maybe not like how a Coehlo fanatic beckons in the New Age, though. I just want people to be happy.

Who represents her artistic family:
Everyone and anyone trying to spread love and awareness.

With whom she would like to grow old:
My family, significant other, dog, and house plants.

What she would like to leave to future generations:
If not a greater understanding, a greater appreciation of truth.

Michelle’s WILD Wish:
To love and be loved! That’s all anyone should hope for.
