Biography

Previously I studied at Dickson College in Canberra before moving to Wollongong for my tertiary studies. Throughout my secondary schooling, I participated in a variety of leadership activities where I was able to discover what passions I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life. I would like to create work that would be beneficial to Australian society, so I decided to study computer science at University of Wollongong. I am hoping to major in cyber security as I believe that in the future, Australia will need qualified cyber security specialists to respond to the ever-evolving threats that plague our cyberspace.

Interests & Passions

  • Leadership and management
  • Independence and self-motivation
  • Ambitious
  • People skilled
  • Tech savvy

I’m excited about technology and the future, because technology is constantly changing and constantly improving. It is because of this that I am committed to working in STEM to further advance society and to advance the representation of women in STEM fields.
