She was a pre-law student at the University of Miami, attending the college on a full scholarship. She worked three jobs - selling purses and shoes at Cole Haan in Coral Gables, entertaining kids for a party planning company and babysitting.
But her life was cut short early Saturday, when a man driving the wrong-way on Interstate 95 slammed his car into Shore's car. Her car burst into flames and she died instantly. She was 18.
Shore's friends say she was always the responsible one.
Though she loved going out and partying, Shore never drank, her friends said.
"She may have only been 18, but she acted like a mother to all of her friends,'' said her best friend, Jennifer Justice.
When the accident happened, Shore was on her way from Coconut Grove, where she watched a movie with a friend, to her Sunrise home.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash, which happened in the nortbound lanes of I-95, near Pembroke Road. The driver of the other car - 26-year-old Ramon Herrera - is in the hospital in critical condition. Charges against him are pending.
Meanwhile, Shore's family is getting ready to bury her.
A visitation Shore will be from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday at Fred Hunter's, 2401 S. University Dr., in Davie. A memorial service will begin at 1 p.m. at the funeral home, followed by interment at Temple Beth El Memorial Gardens, 4900 Griffin Rd., in Davie.
Her family and friends created a MySpace.com page in her honor. Check it out at www.myspace.com/michelleshore.
