Reggie Michelle, aka Red

Reggie Michelle, aka Red

When Red unearthed her high school yearbook, it says, “This bookworm often cuts classes and hides in the library and finds herself with a band of escaping misfits. Together they formed a French rock group, Les Librariens. She is driven to madness to self-learn European languages but couldn't save her life beyond, "Comment allez vous". Years later, she settled with coding  and learned variations of "Hello World”.  Currently, she enjoys radio broadcasting and studying Accounting at TAFE. In the Winter, she skis. In the summer, she kite surfs.
