Michelle's older sister is Vanessa Chiyangwa-Chironga.
She told the MailOnline that she studied acting at Canterbury Christ Church University in the United Kingdom.
In 2016, Michelle owned a black Jeep with a personalised number plate, “BLESSED 1”.
On Monday 30 August 2021, Michelle Chiyangwa launched a GoFundMe bid to raise £7,300 for an operation to manage her weight gain. She had raised just £10 after 15 hours.
Michelle said she was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) in 2012, which causes her to gain weight and have cystic acne.
She had tried to manage her weight gain through diet, exercise and cutting on alcohol but she “barely lost weight.” The description for her appeal for funds read:
"Each time I go on a weight loss journey it is a struggle to work out because number one my breasts are an F Cup and cause a strain on my back and I have never been able to get rid of my stomach, which I think is associated with PCOS,” she says in her fundraising appeal.
Michelle is seeking financial support for a breast reduction op as well as liposuction, a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck.
My back hurts and my confidence is low,” Michelle says in her plea. “I refuse to meet people because of the confidence I have lost because of my body. I feel like I’m developing body dysmorphia as time goes by. I find myself using old videos and pictures of myself or excessive filters, to mask the real me.
I also refuse and avoid meeting people, which has led to me feeling depressed and body shaming myself. I will greatly appreciate any help that you’re willing to give."
