A massive food, language and culture nerd, I'm passionate about growing the friendships and connections that will drive Australia-China partnership forward, and unlocking opportunities and resources for closer bilateral engagement.
My journey started here in Sydney with Westpac's Treasury. Since then, supported by the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan Fellowship, I was lucky enough to work with the United Nations in Myanmar, KPMG Advisory's Global China Practice in Beijing, and Little Creatures in Shanghai - where I am currently based as China Manager of the Australia-China Youth Association (ACYA). In the future I hope to work in development and infrastructure finance.
Interests & Passions
- Food (all kinds)
- Cross-cultural communication
- China trade & investment
- Economic research
- Resource mobilisation
One thing most people would be surprised to know about me is I'm a mix-blooded ball of confusion - with Singaporean, Malay, Chinese, Irish, German and Indian background. My parents and grandparents come from five different countries!
