Michelle had always felt a strong affinity to and interest in Japan. Growing up, not only did her father work in a Japanese company, she read and watched Japanese media, and quickly took to the culture and language. After obtaining her Electronic Engineering Diploma from a local polytechnic, Michelle decided to hone her interest into a skill, and took on a 2-year Japanese language course in Tokyo, Japan. Upon returning to Singapore, Michelle leveraged on her polished third language and started contributing to Japanese companies across industries in her career, including tourism and manufacturing.
