Biography

I am passionate about languages, and speak Chinese, Japanese, and French. However, somewhat unusually, I am also interested in Finance and Economics. Ultimately, I would like to use my unique blend of skills (languages and business) to build positive relations between Australia and Asia, either in the business or diplomatic spheres. I volunteer as the bilingual newsletter editor and fundraising director for the Support Asia Friendship Association, a group which helps Asian women integrate into the Australian community. Finally, I am also deeply interested in Australian politics, and work as an assistant adviser and researcher for the Hon. Kelly O'Dwyer MP.
