I am a second-year Japanese and Linguistics student, enthusiastic about language learning and social justice. After beginning Japanese studies in secondary school, I have developed a love for the language and culture. These studies also ignited a passion for language revival and cross-cultural communication.
I am incredibly excited to return to Japan, where I hope to improve my socio-linguistic understanding, learn more about language preservation of the Japanese Indigenous languages and volunteer with Non-Profit Organisations. In the future, I hope to have a career in Translation and Interpreting, working between Australia and Asia to address international issues and solve global problems.
Outside of study, I enjoy listening to music, running and drinking good coffee. As a feminist, I spend my time increasing my understanding of the experiences of women around the world through reading. I believe education and understanding are the first steps in creating change.
