When I met Michelle at Stanford, she struck me as the ambitious, driven woman who knew what she wanted out of her life and went after it. Interestingly enough, when Michelle let me know she was going to join the corporate world after spending her summer writing, I knew this was not going to last. Why? Because when Michelle sets her charming gaze upon something, she goes after it and makes it a success. Just imagine when that something is her passion. And so, a year later, she finally realized writing was something to stop dabbling in: she quit her JP Morgan job to focus on it full time and hasn’t looked back.
