The Season 18The Bachelorette star said she's "very happy" with the ending of her journey to find love and also "very happy with the experience" she had on the ABC reality dating series overall.
"I'm in a good spot right now," Michelle said.
"I wanted to make sure that regardless of how I come out on the end of this is that I wanted to come out a better person, that I stayed true to who I was and that I didn't have regrets because I stayed true to who I was."
Brandon, Nayte, Joe and Rodney will be taking Michelle to their hometowns to meet their families on the upcoming The Bachelorette broadcast, and Michelle shared how her bachelors really gave her "a new perspective on things."
"The fact that so many of these guys respected that really stood out to me," she elaborated.
Michelle also told People that it was important to her to be open about her experiences and past traumas as a woman of color.
"In a past relationship, I had experiences where I wasn't able to be fully myself, and I think with this, I wanted to make sure that I challenged myself to ask the hard questions, even if I was afraid of the response," Michelle explained.
"I wanted to make sure these guys truly knew how I got to the point that I have come to, and in order to do that, you have to talk about what you've been through."
Michelle that means "talking about the happy times" as well as being vulnerable about "the painful times."
"And so with me asking the men to be vulnerable, I also have to follow suit and make sure that I'm doing the same with them," Michelle said.
