"To me, the Philippines is the home I rediscovered while I was searching for my future."

Philippine Home: Cebu City and Dumaguete City
American Home: Queens, New York
Current Home: Washington, DC

You'll find Micaela wherever books reside. Her dream living space has high ceilings and several rooms with their own distinct functions. She likes to feel as if everything is organized in some way, even if it's actually a mess.


She's comfortable being the… Analyst | Connector | Storyteller | Builder

She feels especially productive… in the morning, before class, when everyone else is asleep. Her New Years' Resolution is to wake up before 9am everyday.

Try not to disturb her… when she's clearly stressed (you can tell).


She sees herself helping Kaya Co. grow by… always being there for you all when you need my help! And being super organized so she can facilitate beautiful collaborations.

She’d like to grow through Kaya Co. by… continuing to get to know the Philippines, its history, and her roots there. She knows that the summer fellowship was just the tip of the island, and that there's so much she needs to learn about herself and how to help the homeland.

One thing you should know… She was a Kaya Fellow who fell in love with the Philippines during my stay. She also really like french fries (ahem, Mika).

Her favorite animal is… the turtle! (See picture) They carry their homes with them wherever they go - just like me :)
