Biography

Growing up in a bilingual family, I developed a deep appreciation of different cultures from a young age. I have a strong interest in Asian cultures and philosophy. My current university studies (International History, Political Science and Mandarin) inspire me to pursue a career in academia and politics. I wish to bridge the cultural gap by working to provide Australians with more opportunities to engage with Asian languages, cultures and history. Aside from my studies, yoga is my passion. I am excited to visit the many outstanding yoga studios in Hong Kong and learn how Asian values link to the themes of health and well-being.

  • Yoga
  • Languages & Politics
  • Entrepreneurship

"My ultimate legacy is to be a role model for males and females to help bridge the cultural gap between the East and the West in a respectful manner."
