Biography

A second year Biomedical Science student, my ambition is to become a Paediatric Psychiatrist and work in a combined clinical-research role. I want to contribute to improving mental health outcomes for children who have lived through humanitarian emergencies.

 

I aim to work and collaborate with medical professionals across the Asia-pacific region. I believe that a strong connection between Australia and Asia is important for making advancements in medical research and ultimately achieving better patient outcomes. During my exchange, I seek to learn more about Asia’s research industry and deepen my understanding of the healthcare systems in rural, remote and metropolitan Asia.

 

Outside of university, I’m passionate about working with youth to help them develop their leadership skills, interpersonal skills and confidence. In my spare time, I love to swim, hike and play dodgeball.
