Violet Vision Editor Michaela Hoffman, Violet Vision Editor

Michaela Hoffman is the Violet Vision Editor for the Washington Square News. She is a freshman in the Liberal Studies Program and hails from Albany, NY. When Michaela to the big city this past fall, Michaela traded in her #basic but comfortable UGG boots for knee-high boots, “in the name of fashion.” However, she is a firm believer that fashion is one of the most powerful forms of self-expression. Style comes from confidence in both your appearance and in yourself. In her free time, Michaela enjoys listening to rock music and talking to anyone that will listen about her dogs Albert and Josie.
