After Michelle Gallahan encountered new friend Kevin Franco at a party, the pair eventually decided to continue their conversation at his home. However, what happened later that night quickly went viral. And Franco never could have predicted that his actions would lead to an online uproar – not to mention some very contrasting opinions.
Gallahan herself, meanwhile, is a college student from Texas who has been studying for a semester in Sydney, Australia. And the 23-year-old has already formed friendships during her time Down Under, including with fellow American student Jessica Lipsey. The pair are roommates, in fact, and they’re now closer than ever after finding themselves at the center of an impassioned internet debate.
That debate arose, moreover, after an experience that Gallahan had in Sydney. On one weekend, she had gone to a party with a group of pals. And, during the evening, she bumped into Franco, another American student whom she had recently befriended. The pair subsequently had a conversation about what it was like to be living abroad; by all accounts, they were getting along well.
