Biography

I carry an immense passion to advocate for the rights of the marginalised, and I hope that the career path I carve for myself will enable me to make incremental positive change. I am interested in the water-food-energy-climate nexus crisis that we currently face, and how technology, international law and diplomacy will address the current unsustainable resource depletion rates. I am intrigued by people’s stories and in understanding how they view underlying socio-cultural issues within different societies.

Skills & Expertise

  • Empathy
  • Cross-cultural Communication
  • International Humanitarian Law
  • Water-food-energy-climate nexus crisis
  • Photography/Digital Media

The best advice I’ve been given is to not let the problems of the world overwhelm you to the point it cripples you from doing anything about them, but to do a little bit at a time; to embark on a life-long trajectory of making incremental change.
