Biography

Growing up Chinese Australian has always made me interested in the role that language and culture has in shaping our identity. In university, through my studies in both history and language, I’m trying to comprehend the experiences of both countries, the dynamic between the East and the West and how that translates in present day culture. I am passionate about my heritage, but more so about understanding the cultural barriers which exist between these two very different societies and how they can be overcome.

Interests & Passions

  • Chinese language and culture
  • Humanitarian aid
  • Education and mentorship
  • European and Asian history
  • Travel

When I was 8 I wanted to grow up and be a host on Better Homes and Gardens.
