Also, recently joining the board for the Miss Amazing pageant and helping to plan next year’s event.  Through the creation of her non-profit, Talent for Epilepsy, she has been able to reach thousands of people with their message and increase awareness for the cause. The first event held November of 2013 raised over $5000. Proceeds will be used for future events and were also donated to the Epilepsy foundation. Their plans are to eventually use the funds to create a scholarship fund for children with disabilities to help families pay for medication and medical bills. Usually Michelle is volunteering every weekend and spends a great deal of her time with planning and administration duties as they apply to Talent for Epilepsy. She has volunteered at over 50 organizations in the past 10 years.
