Biography

Studying Economics, Finance and Japanese at the University of Melbourne, I am passionate about improving Australia's engagement with opportunities in Asia. Having undertaken three short study experiences in Japan, Singapore and Taiwan in 2017, and worked at Asialink, I enjoy learning about new cultures and the inter-country dynamics of the Asia-Pacific. I am actively involved in various university clubs such as the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative, Cainz (economics and finance club) and the Japanese Club. I am thrilled by the opportunity to complete a semester in Singapore as a Westpac Asian Exchange Scholar and look forward to forging lasting connections.

One thing most people would be surprised to know about me is, I have an identical twin brother called Sabre, so if I walk past you and seemingly ignore your presence, it is most likely not me (this has happened before). We are of a Greek background, but our parents got creative with the names.
