Background and Upbringing

Michaela Pereira was raised as one child among five adopted children. She came to know about her adoption at a very early age and always wanted to meet her birth mother and father so that she could connect to them. All five siblings are from different ethnic backgrounds. The different ethnicities of her siblings led the television personality to become a strong advocate for the rights of all children. After large amounts of effort, Michaela managed to meet her biological mother. However, after their meeting, Michaela's mother passed away from colon cancer just a year later. She never succeeded in meeting her father but came to find out that she has a half-sister, who she has met, so there was a happy ending to her story after all.

As a student, Pereira attended a public high school in the Cariboo town of 100 Mile House, British Columbia. The school was known as Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School. After graduating in 1998, she became a student at Camosun College and the University of Victoria, also located in British Columbia. She now works and resides in the United States but she still keeps her Canadian citizenship. Another benefit from her multi-ethnic family background is her multi lingual nature. She now speaks Portuguese fluently, aside from English which is her mother tongue.
