Michael stated that she lived as a girl her whole life but it was not until age 14 she told her dad she wanted to start hormone therapy and undergo surgery, and she says he was very supportive.

Modeling

Shortly after Michael went out as transgender she got scouted by several modeling agencies (such as Elite & MIM) and she moved to both Milan & Paris at age 15.

Michael also had a photo exhibition called "She got a dream" for Transgender Rights in which she posed nude in the pictures to celebrate her life as a woman. Shortly after she released her second photo exhibition "Transgender not transparent" with photographer Sandra Hila. During 2013 she took a break from modeling. Early 2015 Michael signed to Chaos Models Agency and was until July 2015 when she descided she did not wanna be involved with that agency anymore.
