Michael is a young leader in the Panama, NY community who is committed to his personal growth, and is excited for this opportunity to explore nature, learn holistic health practices, and connect with others.


While Michael is driven and committed to his development on and off the court, he is distracted when hecklers in the crowd and on the court start talking and gets sucked into the back and forth which he recognizes as unhealthy and something he wants to change.


He also experiences ADHD and has also lost a loved one which is why he is looking forward to the support of this retreat and the benefits it will bring to his mental health.
