Michelle is one of 26 PNG women who have been awarded Australia Awards Maritime Scholarships since 2018 through an innovative partnership with Pacific Towing, Steamships, Consort Shipping and China Navigation. The partnership supports maritime workforce development and gender equality. 

Awardees’ time at sea – which observes strict COVID-19 protocols – is a chance to gain valuable hands-on experience.

‘The professionalism and work ethics shared among the officers and crew is very inspiring and encouraging,’ Michelle says.

‘I encourage other Papua New Guinean women to apply.  As much as a maritime career is challenging, it’s also rewarding.’.
