Michelle Jia, ’17


Michelle Jia is learning to be a “regular person” in her life after Stanford and have a real relationship with humility, as well as learning to listen to others and practice empathy– especially when they are hurting or offending her personally. Spoken Word helped her understand performance in a way that she’s never been able to replicate. Now, she’s an active jazz vocalist and uses what she learned in SWC every day.
