I’ve known Michelle for a few years now, and it never ceases to amaze me the way she broke into the media industry at a young age. As a celebrity and entertainment reporter, she’s interviewed Cody Simpson, Charice, and a handful of Disney Channel stars — and her list just keeps getting bigger. Michelle has done over a hundred interviews and was previously featured in Seventeen magazine.
Hi, I’m Michelle! I’m 21 years old and live in Johannesburg (or otherwise known as the City of Gold) in South Africa. I sometimes blog at www.mishinformed.com where I give people a behind-the-scenes look at the media industry, publish my local and international interviews and do event reporting. I work in the television broadcasting industry. I love watching anime and reading manga – I’m currently learning Japanese.
