Biography

I am a third year Arts/Law student at The Australian National University with a passion for Mandarin Chinese. I believe in the power of cultural intelligence to bring nations together in our increasingly globalised world. My goal is to use my time abroad to improve Asia-literacy among young Australians to better equip them to harness the incredible opportunities that the Asian Century will bring. In the future, I hope to work in law or diplomacy with a strong focus on strengthening Australia-Asia ties. I am passionate about health and fitness and am both a qualified gymnastics coach and ski instructor.

  • Law
  • Public Speaking
