I have a passion for language-learning because it is ultimately the gateway to understanding cultures, ideas and history. Most importantly, language is a means to facilitate conversation and human connections. I am interested in conversations, the exchange of ideas and debating the big questions of both our time and time immemorial. One of these debates that has led me to study Chinese, is the question of the Australia in Asian Century. I hope to intellectually engage and grapple with the notion of Asia and what it means to Australia – this is my current project.
Interests & Passions
