Michelle faces her first day in PINY. She meets her new friends but also encounters a rival who keeps watching her.


Continuing from the previous episode, Michelle gets ready to go to PINY, however, out of excitement she makes her father's burned "toast".

At the gates of PINY, is met by Sam who recognises her from the previous day. Sam gives Michelle her own dare-way and shows her around Campus and where her room is. Knowing Michelle's room is opposite Julia's, her wishes her luck.

Straight away Michelle rushes to her room and meets Tasha Robinson and Lilith Henderson who tell her there is an assembly. Michelle now meets Mr. Grasso, Ms. Montclair and Coach Spencer who are in the assembly as well as Madame Forbes. She gives Julia an award for being the best student. Which Julia brags about and announces she is having a party in the name of the new students. Back in the room, Michelle is asked what was her old school and background.

In the party, Sam who is taking pictures is shocked (as well as William, Rita and Dory) by what Michelle is wearing which gets Julia annoyed who accidentally makes Michelle spill her drink on her.
