Profile:

Michaella is not ethnically Japanese, but she has lived her entire life in Japan. Though she can speak, read and write Japanese, she also enjoys teaching English as a second language to children in her hometown. She is an accomplished dancer, skilled in modern ballet and hip-hop, who offers dance lessons to students after school. Michaella loves spending time with animals when she can, especially horses and her pets, a Golden Retriever named Patriot and two rabbits named Snowflake and Jack. Recently, a Romanian student at Michaella’s school gave a presentation about all the amazing sights in Romania, and that country is now at the top of Michaella’s must-see list.
