Michelle took keen interest in blogging since her school years itself. During her schooling, she used to edit the daily school newspaper. She even worked as a press inserter, network news librarian and as a tax preparation aide. Michelle’s very first article in which she censured Oberlin’s affirmative action problem received a derogatory response from her friends but this didn’t stop Michelle from doing what she loved and later on being successful at it.

Throwing some light on Michelle’s love life, it is known to everyone that she began dating her college friend Jesse Malkin whom she met in Oberlin.
