State: Virginia

Age: 18

Bio: My name is Michelle Miles and I live in Charlottesville, VA. I am currently a sophomore in high school and I love photography and art.

Michelle's Updates

I Am A State Park Ambassador Because:
I have found that America's state parks are the best places to take beautiful photos, which I love to do, and through this program I am hoping to share my pictures with other people interested in the parks. Also, I am affected by a disease called Muscular Dystrophy, requiring me to use a wheelchair. By visiting state parks and blogging about my experiences, I am hoping to help inform people of the accessibility of the parks and possibly make suggestions to improve the accessibility of existing parks and parks in the future.

Schools Attended: Monticello High School

First State Park: Enchanted State Park in Texas

Favorite State Park: Wakulla Springs in Florida

Park I Am Really Eager To Visit: Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia

I've Visited State Parks In: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wyoming

Coolest Thing I've Seen In Parks:
I really enjoyed walking the trail of the Cascades, which is in my mother's hometown and also where my parents were married. I went on that trail many times when I was little and the waterfalls and swimming hole at the end are breath taking.

Interests: Photography, Art, Fashion

Music Played At My Campfire: My brother plays the guitar.

What Not To Miss In My State's Parks: The state parks in Virginia have the most beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Who I Would Go On A Hike With If I Could: My black lab, Teddy.

This Sums It All Up For Me: Be who you are because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
