Biography

I am a final year medical student and the co-founder of Happy Brain education. I am extremely passionate about rectifying social injustices and helping those who are most vulnerable in our society.

 

I really want to make a difference in the education sector. I came to Australia when I was 10 and school and education opened so many doors to me. I went from being a fearful, anxious child of a family seeking refuge in Australia to where I am now (and I hope to go much further in the future). I know that education can help many other children who come from a similar background to me and can empower, encourage, and open many doors to them.

Health is another passion of mine, because it’s such an important human right, yet so many do not have access to adequate healthcare.

 

I wish I had infinite time so that I can contribute to all the causes that I care about and help everyone who needed help.
