Micah Obar just turned 18. Years earlier, she had a problematic teenage life. She was originally from San Fernando, Pampanga but her relatives sent her to Tondo with the hope that she finds herself and goes back to school. It was in Tondo that she was able to learn about Escuela Taller. At first she was hesitant togo through the training program because she thought that the dexterous work linked to the skills training was more for men. Now, she is showing great potential with her newly acquired skills. She is considering continuing her education to further equip herself for the future.
