Biography

I really believe that global networks opens up a world of opportunity.  As a Commerce student, I think that going past the textbooks and lectures theatres and getting practical experience is very important to succeeding in this competitive field. This is definitely why I find culturally immersive experiences so fulfilling as it opens your eyes to new culture, language, people and connections. I'm really looking forward to connecting with companies and professionals in Hong Kong, as this appeals to me as a place which I would love to work when I graduate, in the industry of Commercial Real Estate.
