Biography

I am a passionate and driven young woman who is inspired by the countless unique and diverse cultures across the globe. I hold a love for marketing and communications, and I hope to apply my Japanese language skills to my future career in international business.

 

My strong affinity for Japan and its' languages, paired with my determination to preserve Indigenous cultures, has led me to focus my interests on language revivalism. The rich languages of the Indigenous Ainu people of Japan and the First Nations peoples of Australia are disappearing into history and I endeavour to contribute positively to the education of these languages.

 

My favourite times are spent surrounded by nature, whether it’s through exploring the beauty of Australia or beyond. Music and dance also hold a special place in my life through their ability to transcend language, culture and time.
