Biography

In 2015 I moved from Sydney to Canberra to start my studies. I am currently a student of the Australian National University spending semester 1 2017 on exchange at Tsinghua University, Beijing. Asia has been my passion since I was 15. From the incredible history to the modern Korean Dramas I love it all. My goal is to work in an international relations sector of the government alongside countries such as China, South Korea or Japan, especially in the security field. I am also a big fan of soccer and Muay Thai and love to travel.

Skills & Expertise

  • Asian History
  • International Security in the South China Sea
  • International Relations between China and the USA
  • Australian Political History
  • Zoo Keeping

My proudest moment was running my first solo 45 minute tour of Old Parliament House. We all fear public speaking until we become accustomed to it and when I first become a tour guide it was terrifying. However the first time I ran my own tour and finished without too many mishaps and unanswered questions I was so proud.
