Biography

Hello, my name is Yuanliang (Bobby) Wen, the son of a Chinese immigrant single mother. My main passions are foreign affairs, Chinese history and culture as well as ways to harmonise different cultures within one society. As the effects of globalisation takes over our everyday lives, I believe it is important for me and Australia to explore potentials for integration and co-operation of everyone in multicultural societies and learn to address the backlash against globalisation and immigration.

I am an aspiring diplomat and in my spare time I enjoy practicing Chinese calligraphy and cooking.

My fondest childhood memory is spending time with my grandma. Whilst as a child then I was too young to properly appreciate her, it was my grandma who lovingly and diligently raised me without a single complaint.
