We are very proud of you Michelle….

Datin Janet Yeoh, Michelle’s mother was seen proudly launching the poster with May Goh and the alumni from Ave Maria Convent Alumni Association, Madam  Moy Ooi Thye and Agnes Wong from Main Convent Girls Alumni Ipoh.

Goh said the “she is personally very proud of Michelle. Sponsoring this poster is a testimony that I appreciate Michelle’s effort and am proud of her achievement.”

She invited Madam Moy who then invited Agnes Wong of the Main Convent  Alumni President to attend the launch.

Goh added that Madam Moy and Agnes Wong were present today because they too are proud of Michelle’s achievement and came to show their support and celebrate her success.

Madam Moy said Michelle’s acceptance speech on Oscars night telling ‘ladies not to give up and dream big as dreams do come true’ was an inspiration and motivator for our youth.

Agnes Wong personally described the morning event as positive. She was informed of the event one week ago. She gathered her committee, some of whom were Michelle’s classmates and came together to celebrate their fellow student’s success.

Agnes shared the same year with Michelle but her twin sister and four others that attended this morning were her classmates.
