Biography

I feel very fortunate to be able to study two of my passions, the Chinese language and medicine. On my exchange, I am excited to develop a greater insight into the Chinese culture and foster cultural awareness within myself. In the future, I want to be able to contribute to the community by increasing healthcare access to those from culturally and linguistically diverse populations. Beyond this, I hope to be a global researcher and clinician, able to take part in international research collaborations and the development of medical biotechnology. In my spare time, you can find me falling off the bouldering wall, eating dumplings with friends and checking out the latest NGV exhibition.
