This was the response Michelle received when she shared her situation with someone who really should have known better. Michelle is a single mum and has brought up her now 19 year old daughter on her own. Driven by her own personal experience, in 2010 she went back to University and studied for a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Abuse. Prior to this she was a professional broadcaster- for over 20 years working for many of the UK’s leading commercial and BBC radio stations, including KEY 103 and XFM. Michelle presented BBC Radio Manchester's News Breakfast show for two years and her evening show at the BBC won The North West Comedy Awards. In addition to her broadcast background, she has worked in corporate communications and PR. Like so many people, Michelle has suffered with depression and is a survivor of a violent and abusive relationship. She has many skills which will help empower the individuals and families that STAND FOR engage with.
