Biography

Whilst on my international exchange program, I am a volunteer with the Ronald McDonald House, teaching young children how to read English. I am also volunteering in an International Language Exchange program to teach English to local university students, and to learn Cantonese from them.I am passionate about researching and understanding the lives of ordinary people and societies. I am fascinated by the connection between social/political history, the present, and how this may affect future generations. I aspire to be an advocate for positive global and social change, through critical historical research, and research of the present. I aspire to link this with much relationship building and networking with individuals and communities with differing past experiences that have affected current and future needs to experience positive change, prosperity, wellness and happiness, especially for societies that have been affected by major conflicts.
