In 2016, Michaela proudly became an ambassador of War Child Holland. The organization works exclusively to improve the resilience and wellbeing of children living with violence and armed conflict to empower children worldwide. As she grew up in Sierra Leone, she personally knows the deep traumatic effects of war and conflict.
Being an ambassador gives Michaela the opportunity to show that no matter what circumstances you are born into you can still dream, work hard, have perseverance, and most importantly … hope! Michaela went to Uganda (2017) and Lebanon (2018) to visit the refugee settlements, to talk with them about their experiences and share her story. She passionately believes in two things: psychological therapy and education.
