My name is Michelle Mehta, a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, an Associate Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation, and a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner.
I was born in an Indian Family, and the first person in my family to be raised in the United States. I grew up with a tremendous amount of love and support throughout my life.
As I entered elementary school, I used to tell my parents, “I have no friends.”
When I entered middle school, I started to value friendships and made a great group of friends; however, I was bullied a few times and felt insecure about my body.
As I went through high school, I was bullied again and gave up on school. I even failed most of my classes. I changed schools again in junior year, and recognized my self-worth and realized what authentic friendships looked and felt like.
My college career began by focusing on my strengths as a leader and team player, and I embraced the fact that I was not like my peers. I realized I was made to do things that were unique and different compared to my peers and classmates.
