Michael Walters

Michael was born and raised in Greece, and immigrated to the United States when he was sixteen in the wake of Greece’s devastating financial crisis. Upon graduating high school, he enlisted in the Army and served as a combat medic for the 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, NC. After four years, Michael separated, moved to Seattle, and earned his Associate’s degree in less than a year. He is now pursuing a Bachelor’s in English and Psychology at the University of Washington, and plans to become a teacher and guidance counselor for students, inmates, and veterans.
