Have You Met Michaella?

For those of you on campus, you've probably already met her... but we'd like to formally introduce our new receptionist to the rest of the FAIS community: Michaella Joseph!

Michaella (pronounced: mee-kai-ella) joined us on July 22, 2019. She's a native Portlander, completed the I.B. Programme at Cleveland High School, and recently graduated from Reed College with a degree in linguistics. She studied abroad in Rennes, France where she studied Breton, the native Celtic language of Breizh (Bretagne), and the history of the French language.

Michaella speaks English, French, Russian, Breton, and is trying to learn Arabic! She's also really fun to talk to (in any language), so make sure to say "hi" next time you pass by the front desk.
