Michelle Law presents to her audience with a warmth and intimacy which invites a feeling of privilege and specialness. Her humour and courage carry messages inspiring appreciation, gratitude and acceptance – for self and others. Michelle’s open discussion about having alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition, and her own journey to live authentically, to be brave enough to seek and embrace challenges and dreams, are universal and relevant for everyone. Her poignant reflection on identity and what it means to be real remains and influences long after her address is finished.

To be vulnerable, witty, and intelligent in a speech is not an easy thing to do. It requires true skill and an ability to connect quickly with your audience and understand exactly what their wants and needs are. Michelle Law achieves this difficult feat every time she takes a stage. Perhaps it is due to her magical way with words as a writer, or maybe it is due to the roles that she can draw upon as female, sister, daughter, writer, second culture kid, suffering a non-curable disease and/or her passion to do more and be more. Whatever it is every time she takes the stage she leaves the audience wanting more.

Incredibly bright, Michelle speaks with authority on issues covering the spectrum from public affairs – society, politics and the arts to the personal – health, identity, and growing up in a multi-cultural Australia. With a demonstrated ability to adapt to her audience, I would absolutely recommend Michelle for speaking engagements and look forward to booking her again.

In November of this year Michelle spoke at the FYA annual summit for young changemakers. Our audience consisted of young people aged 16 to 29, all of whom have an agenda to inspire change in their community. It was a pleasure to listen to Michelle speak to the hearts and minds of our young audience; she was real, relatable and above all honest.

There is no doubt that Michelle has much to offer in terms of her unique perspectives about growing up in Australia, learning about oneself, and building a life based on passion and purpose. I look forward to her stories to come.

—Alissa Holton Coordinator, FYA Changemaking Team
