Michelle Dixon, 18, a freshman at Augusta State University is in this week's spotlight.

STATS: 18, a freshman at Augusta State University

WHAT: Future translator

HER STORY: Michelle has talents for fashion, baking and making people smile, and she makes no excuses in using them to help people.

A frequent volunteer, she also baby-sits, donates to local charities and works with her father's business.

"I just feel it's the right thing to do," she said.

"And besides, I always want people to do stuff for me ... take me shopping, too!"

Her good attitude comes from home.

"I am this way because of the way I was raised, and I get my traits from my mom and dad."

Michelle plans to major in Spanish and minor in early childhood education, and one day to become a translator.
