Biography

I am very interested in the way societies function, including their culture, history and politics. Before moving to Australia I felt little connection to Asia. However, having experienced the multicultural society here, I grew very interested in discovering East Asia, and I am especially interested in Japan.

 

I study Japanese and International Relations, working towards becoming a diplomat. I hope to bring Australia (and myself) closer to Asia. Gaining a better understanding of culture and politics will aid in establishing good, understanding relations with Asian states, and help Australia become part of the region.

 

Outside of study I enjoy playing trumpet, reading manga and playing board games.
