Biography

I am a final year student at Monash University studying Arts and Law, with a major in International Studies and a minor in Journalism. I am passionate about seeing a difference in the world around me, whether through entrepreneurship, merging the commercial world with social impact, or facilitating innovation within the legal profession. I get excited about what technology could change, and wish to see young people pursue purpose-driven lives and careers.

 

Outside my work and studies, travelling quenches my curiosity about the world, and I consider a six-month study and travel stint around Canada, the US, and Europe one of the highlights of my life so far. With my deepening interest in Asia, I can't wait to explore  its different perspectives and cultures, bringing those insights straight back home.

Skills & Expertise

  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Law
  • Technology
  • Cross-cultural understanding
  • Leadership

My fondest childhood memory is a late night game my Dad, brother and I used to play which involved spinning a world globe around and trying to guess the names of capital cities. I like to think it's what inspired my interest in different countries and people!
