Hi! My name is Michaela Patafio, and I am a third-year honors student at The University of Georgia. I'm a raised-by-Yankees Georgia peach with an affinity for brunch and dancing around the kitchen. I fiercely believe in the power of a grateful heart and my mother's chicken noodle soup. 

Human beings often forget how special they are, and my fire comes from motivating and inspiring them to realize their potential. My passion for writing, coupled with my desire to reach and relate to people in order to create change, gives me a unique set of skills and aspirations that I am actively trying to wrap my mind around. 

I hope to make my life a service to humanity; I hope to do good for this world.
