Micah grew up in Mt.Vernon, NY with a family of strong women who guided him and showed him how to work with purpose and love while serving community, as well as a father who taught him to always widen his perspective. But even with this strong foundation, he struggled with fear of the world, a lack of motivation, and what would have most likely been diagnosed as depression.

Through time, deep self-work, fatherhood, and connection, Micah learned to discard the self-defining term “shy”, understanding that he doesn’t need to define himself at all, but rather is free to feel and act as he chooses in the present. With this new awareness, Micah began forging a new path. It was still at the early stages of this process that Micah joined GWI as a Fellow and discovered ways to step more boldly into his own voice and work towards Just Transition.
