The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation to me means that I should be Mighty In Character. It encourages me to be strong in everything I do. It helps me to be confident in myself and in everything I do. It helps me to believe in myself and to do my school work. It also helps me to achieve my goals and set them the right way. It also encourages me to build my faith, joy and peace.

To me MIC means that I should be on the right track, to study my books and to read and write better. MIC means Mighty in Character. I am a very mighty person in my character. I love to come first in my class. I am a bright girl. I do not want to waste time. MIC also means to do the things that are right and loving. I like to share, and I respect everyone because I am respectful and patient. I am MIC.
