After high school in Kenya, Michelle wanted to study in Australia. She was interested in physiotherapy, but felt unsure about her next step. Wanting to find her feet in the Australian system, she chose to study a Diploma in Health Science at The College at Western.

"The College helped me focus. It was very hands-on. They look after you there - you won't get lost at all. I was able to complete my diploma, and now I'm studying a Bachelor of Health Science degree at the University. I hope one day to go back to Kenya and start a practice."
