At school, Michaela is involved with her class council, the Mock Trial Team, the Spanish Club, she is member of National Honor Society and tutors struggling students. For sports, she plays volleyball and is Captain of the PHS team. Last year, she was chosen for the All-Berkshire volleyball team.

When not in school or playing volleyball, Michaela can be found shadowing doctors at BMC and already has more than 50 hours under her belt.
