    Michaela Morse is from Tacoma, WA. She is currently a junior, with plans in pursuing a career in Social Work. If you were to describe Michaela in three words, they would be imaginative, empathetic, and ambitious. Here at EWU, she has learned that if you want to achieve a goal, you need to start somewhere small and it will progress into something big. With that being said, she was elected Freshman Representative of the Black Student Union during her first year at EWU, she is a member of EWU's own Hip Hop Dance team Kode Red, and a mentee for the Ujima Mentoring program offered here at EWU. She is now the captain of the Kode Red dance team, firstSTEP Session Coordinator, and a mentor for two sophomores. Michaela's words of advice: "Opportunities are given, but can be lost in a blink of an eye. Don't waste another minute, and start something BIG!"
