As a child, Michaela was bullied in school and had been tormented by others. She struggled with body image and was made fun of because of her weight and desire to be a performer. Michaela battled with depression, acceptance and medical let downs, she developed fibromyalgia at an early age and it debilitated her from rforming which drove her deeper into depression.
Through it all she still had the support of her father and he believed in her. This led him to send a tape to the producers of ‘The Voice’ which landed her an audition and the rest is history. When she appeared on the show, this was her stage to prove to the doubters that she was never giving up on her dreams.
As children progress through the teenage years, they develop and form independent thoughts, which often conflict with ideas and concepts held by adults and peers. Through this tour, Michaela hopes to reach out to pre-teens and teens through her self-realization, offering encouragement, empowerment, and belief in themselves in order to pursue their dreams.
