Raised in Cincinnati, Michelle Yi is
in her final year at the University of Cincinnati where she is
studying fashion design at their college of Design, Architecture,
Art and Planning (DAAP).
Yi enjoys fashion photography, traveling and is an avid and
competitive rock climber. She enjoys 80s pop music, drinking Eddie
James, pirates, things that are green and video games prefaced with
the name Mario. Yi admits she likes to eat--everything from Korean
BBQ to Cincinnati Skyline Chili, with a particular weakness for ice
cream and sushi. To complement her love for food, Yi practices yoga,
lifts weights and trains for climbing. She's not a big fan of cardio
workouts, but does it anyway because she believes it builds
character and prevents heart disease.
Yi describes herself as very independent and is a true believer in
following one's passions and staying inspired. She thinks a positive
attitude will keep you smiling through anything. She believes her
bubbly and laid back personality allows her to enjoy most people,
but she claims if you rub her the wrong way, she'll be sure you know
it! Yi's hero is her mother, who lives in Taipei, Taiwan.
Yi hopes to continue to travel, particularly to go "bouldering"
in New Zealand and to spend some time in her favorite hotspot,
Manhattan. Yi currently resides in Cincinnati. Her birth date is
December 2, 1983.
