Biography

As a passionate individual who has always been mesmerised by the efficiency of technology, studying a Bachelor of Business combined with the Bachelor of Science in IT at the University of Technology is a dream come true. Since I was a child, the intricacy of technology has always inspired me - seeing the way social media landscapes spiral from basic information systems to lively open-spaces for free speech, and the sharing of thought. I am very much interested in the topic of globalisation catalysed by technology and the ways which individuals evolve through it. Aside from this, I see myself as a dependable, understanding and sincere person. My hobbies including everything from writing, videography and photography, all the way to meditation, physical exercise and blogging. I want to inspire the future generation of Australia, as part of the Westpac 100 Scholars Network, to not only become the best version of myself personally, but to also continue the progress of impact and influence IT has globally.
