Transformative Moment

Being undefeated in my first Solheim Cup against Europe, in 2009.

Michelle Says

My good luck charms are...

stones in my bag that have positive quotes on them.

My pre-competition music is...

hip-hop.

If I wasn’t an athlete...

I probably would have tried to follow in my dad’s footsteps and become a professor.

My favorite meal is...

sushi.

On my day off...

I like to hang out with friends and paddleboard. I love being in the water.

My motto is...

Courage doesn’t mean you aren't afraid; courage means you don’t let fear stop you.

When I’m not training...

I like to paint or cook.

I want my legacy to be...

empowering young girls to forge their own paths and inspiring them to value education just as much as their sport.
