Hi, I’m Michaela!
I was born in the middle of Michigan and as a child I used to make dresses for my dolls out of single, abandoned socks. You might say I thought outside of the box from the start! I decided to move to New York City in 2008 and very few people were surprised at my adventurous spirit and desire to explore.
Little did I know moving to New York, as an anxious twenty something, that the city is where I would find my peace. Where I would come full circle. Where I would finally meet my true self. It took time, patience and awareness but in the end it came to me in the form of contentment and love.
I continue to be amazed that the only way to get to that place and stay there is through becoming kind and understanding to and of myself. Out of this thinking SELFKIND was born as a platform to document that growth as it continues to happen but also in hopes to create a community of those on the same path and those striving to find it.
