Among many things, Michelle is an international adoptee from the UK adopted in the United States. As a little girl struggling through the foster care system, young Michelle learned early that only perfection equated safety. Thus, the perfect grades, the best job, the nicest car... all of these things began to mean survival. She rose to the top, becoming a successful broadcast news journalist and balancing a series of impressive roles. So, why did she walk away from the financial and emotional security she worked so hard to achieve? What changed, and is she happy with this decision?

Hear Michelle discover that what she was looking for had been there all along.
