Michelle Zacarias

Michelle Zacarias is a writer and campus coordinator at People's World. A graduate of the Univ. of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Michelle has invested her time in raising awareness on issues of social justice and equality. She has written and conducted research in several parts of the world; most recently Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where she presented on disability awareness at the U.S. Consulate. Michelle self identifies as multi-marginalized: as a Latina, a woman of color and a person with disabilities. She considers her experiences a privilege, one that she hopes to use as a platform for spreading socio-political consciousness. In her spare time Michelle enjoys drinking pricey wines and watching old school zombie flicks.

Michelle is the founder and head editor of TheMegaphoneBlog.com, a virtual platform for marginalized voices including disability advocacy, race and women/gender issues.[1]

In a relationship with Donzel Leggett II.
