Biography

I’m a student, a feminist and proudly Australian-born Chinese. I’m fascinated by the differences between Asian and Western cultures which have shaped who I am today, and hope to bridge this divide by promoting greater cross-cultural understanding. I’m also passionate about fair trade and ethical consumerism, particularly in the fashion industry, and strive to increase appreciation of the power we hold as consumers. When I’m not working or studying I’m usually writing, at the movies with friends, or volunteering with some amazing organisations!
