Biography

I’m currently studying bachelors of International Relations/ Law at ANU. I am interested in the International Relations side of my degree because I feel like it’s very relevant to understanding how the world is changing and I aim to pursue a career in international affairs. I’m passionate about issues such as women’s rights, climate change and diversity. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading and spending time with family and friends.
