Hi! I'm Michelle Hua.

I help individuals build their tech careers in the UK with the UK Global Talent Visa

I am a UK Global Talent Visa Coach and Recipient and I help highly skilled tech entrepreneurs and talent with the UK Global Talent Visa endorsement in Digital Technology.

In 2016, I was endorsed with Exceptional Talent for my work in advocating for women and diversity in tech and for developing innovative technology for my UK tech start up, Made With Glove. I received the UK Global Talent Visa to live and work in the UK and became the Ambassador for the #TechNationVisa Scheme. In just three years, I received my Indefinite Leave to Remain Visa in the UK and became a British Citizen as a result of being a recipient of the UK Global Talent Visa. I have helped over 250 highly skilled tech entrepreneurs and talent by coaching them on the Stage 1 endorsement process and my success rate is 80% while the endorsement rate is 54%. 

In 2019 I was listed in the Top 100 Influencers on Gender Equality and Diversity for my work in advocating for women and diversity in tech.

I was previously a commercial properly law solicitor in Australia and New Zealand and I hold Bachelor degrees in Commerce (Curtin University) and Laws (Murdoch University) from Perth, Western Australia.

Results I have helped create

Hear what my clients say about me.
Senegal

"I remember feeling extremely overwhelmed but I was drawn to Michelle because she knew exactly how I was feeling as she had gone through the same thing I was about to go through. She made the application process very enjoyable but she kept her eyes on our goals and held me accountable on all my weekly deliverables. We worked really hard and we had the cause to laugh harder when I got my endorsement a day after submission. I am thankful for the experience to work with one of the best there is!"

"My initial unsuccessful application came with feedback that further increased my chances. Michelle helped me in putting a structure and strategy around my application. That was the gap for me. I was so overwhelmed with the process and Michelle’s help and support was my golden bullet."

"I just heard and they accepted my appeal!!!!! I am so shocked and relieved and just unbelievably GRATEFUL to you for everything. There are hardly words to express how thankful I am for everything you’ve done for me. You have literally changed my life and I 100% would not have gotten this without you. THANK YOU ❤️ "

"Michelle was extremely reassuring and based on her own experience and with other clients, she’s seen it all. The most remarkable part was the amount of confidence I began to build during our time in working together. I received so much more than just materials and resources. Michelle provided a valuable second eye on all my documents and writing, she questioned and helped problem-solve and provided endless encouragement. I’m so grateful for my time with Michelle and I have come out of the process more confident in who I am as a professional, but also where I want to take my career. It’s so worth it!"

"The amount of work and the effort you put in is remarkable and that was the reason I could make it successful. I recall when I started thinking about the 10 documents and the day I submitted, you helped improve the quality and language of my documents and application by more than 80%. I only had the content in my mind but you gave my whole documentation and application proper shape. Thank you Michelle from the bottom of my heart."

Ajay
Enterprise Architect
Exceptional Promise Visa recipient.
India

"The nature of my engagement with Michelle started off with limited engagement and soon my timely self-realisation expanded our relationship to cover each application aspect. Our engagement was intense as we discussed and debated both the guideline text and my evidence till the finish line. I always saw Michelle as a ‘sculptor’ who shaped my application throughout the entire process. We worked very closely in strategising, planning and execution. Michelle’s ‘passion and excitement’ for helping T1 aspirants made me select her over my other advisors. I believe, our relationship has moved from being a professional to a friendly one. 🙂"

How I Can Help You With The UK Global Talent Visa Endorsement Process

My success rate is 80% so working with me will increase your chances of getting endorsed with Exceptional Talent or Exceptional Promise so that you can apply for your Global Talent Visa in Digital Technology.

The Global Talent Visa or Tech Nation Visa (formerly called the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa) in Digital Technology is a special visa introduced to allow highly skilled tech entrepreneurs and talent apply for the right to live and work in the UK for up to five years.  It is a two stage process where the applicant must be endorsed by Tech Nation, a UK Government organisation which helps the UK tech sector grow through a range of programmes and support entrepreneurs in digital technology. An applicant must be endorsed with Exceptional Talent or Exceptional Promise by meeting the strict criteria set by Tech Nation before they can apply for the Global Talent Visa. #TechNationvisa specifically refers to the Global Talent Visa in Digital Technologies

In 2016, I was endorsed with Exceptional Talent in Digital Technologies for my work in advocating women in tech and for developing innovative technology for my UK tech start up, Made With Glove. I received the Global Talent Visa to live and work in the UK and became the Ambassador for the #TechNationVisa Scheme. In just three years, I received my Indefinite Leave to Remain Visa and became a British Citizen as a result of being a recipient of the UK Global Talent Visa. I have coached over 250 highly skilled tech entrepreneurs and talent with the Stage 1 endorsement application.

*Disclaimer – the Stage 1 endorsement for exceptional talent and exceptional promise are not visa applications. I only coach in Stage 1 endorsement applications.  For any immigration advice, please seek the services of an immigration solicitor.
