Biography

I have had aspirations to move into the finance sector to upon graduation since before I finished high school, ideally to find work in an investment bank or consulting firm. Besides this, since a young age I have had a passion for Asian culture, commencing study of Chinese (Mandarin) at 12 years of age and still continue to study to this day. Alongside this, I enjoy contributing to charities that I can personally relate to, I have been a part of the leukaemia foundation and also been involved in helping disadvantaged Asian children receive a better education through providing myself as a teacher to those without access to schools and sufficient study materials.
