The protagonist in “The Michelle I Know” is Michelle. Michelle is the main character in the story because she is the one who has cancer and the story revolves around her.


The antagonist in the story is leukemia. Michelle is upset and hates herself all because of the side effects of having cancer like losing her hair or always being pocked by needles.

The conflict in “The Michelle I Know” was that she has leukemia. She hates the way she looks, since she is balled and hates wearing her wig because she feels that it resembles to Barbie doll hair and looks so fake. If she didn’t have leukemia she wouldn’t have such low self-esteem. She wouldn’t always say that she is ugly. She also wouldn’t hate her life since her friends don’t bother coming to see her anymore and she has to face the consequences of having leukemia.
