Becoming Me

Michelle grew up in the 1960s on the South Side of Chicago with her parents and her brother, Craig. Her parents rented an apartment on the second floor of her great-aunt and uncle’s bungalow. When she was a child, her father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

Michelle’s great-aunt was a piano teacher, and Michelle started learning how to play when she was four years old. At her first big piano recital, she wasn’t used to a big, fancy piano and she froze. Fortunately, her aunt came on stage and pointed her in the right direction.

She grew up in a middle-class and racially mixed neighbourhood. When she was in second grade, she had a particularly bad teacher and complained to her mother. After a few tests, she got reinstalled permanently into an orderly third-grade class.
