Michelle lives near the base of Masaya Volcano, an active volcano in western Nicaragua. The eldest of four children, her father is a taxi driver and her mother is a housewife. She says, “I had a great childhood; I was healthy and my parents were always there for me.” She became involved with Young Life after meeting her grandmother’s friend who was the area director in her city. At just 16 years old, Michelle became a club coordinator. Her area director states, “Michelle is a leader with great potential and has already demonstrated leadership qualities. She has been running a club in the city and will soon start a new club in a new neighborhood. She has a lot of courage to impact the young people of her community.”

As a Developing Global Leader, Michelle is studying psychology. She hopes to continue serving Young Life after graduation and would also like to open her own clinic in order to serve families and youth with low incomes in her community. She will be the first in her family to graduate university.
