Biography

I am a third year Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and Diploma of Languages student at ANU with a particular interest in cross-cultural, positive and biological neuropsychology. I’m also exceptionally passionate about exploring our earth. I have always felt humbled and excited by this incredible planet, achingly curious and immensely grateful to live in a time when exploration is possible. I’ve travelled extensively throughout Europe and Southeast Asia and have lived for extended periods of time in Pau, France, and Copenhagen, Denmark.

 

I love languages, am proficient in French and can speak basic Danish and Japanese. I hope that my time in Singapore will broaden my perspectives, skills and networks and thus empower me to have a positive impact on Australian society. In the future, my goal is to pursue my PhD and to ultimately contribute to the advancement of awareness of psychological wellbeing and to innovative approaches to prevention and treatment of mental disorders, be it within a clinical environment or through academia or research. In my spare time, I enjoy sports, cooking, Sudoku and spending time with friends and family.
