Biography

For as long as I can remember I have always been interested in studying cultures and languages. I was fortunate enough to be raised in a multicultural household where we spoke French, this created a deep appreciation for culture and tradition, later fuelling my fascination for Asia and sequentially learning Vietnamese as well as Mandarin.

 

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce and majoring in Sustainability, my interest in sustainability and environmental conservation stems from my love of the outdoors. When I have time to spare, you will most likely find me free diving, hiking or running. This passion has led to me to pursue both sustainable farming, through the building of multiple hydroponic carbon-neutral systems at home, as well as sustainable fishing where I dive and catch all the fish I eat.


I enjoy a good conversation on politics, the role of Australia on the international stage as well as our economy and how we can work to promote a better future for Australians. Through my exchange I hope to develop my understanding of business operations and the values of individuals within this region, how we can work together and come to innovative and creative solutions to climate issues, ultimately mitigating our current devastating impact on the global biosphere.
