Biography

I am currently studying Commerce at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Accounting and Finance. As an Australian born Chinese myself, I have always been interested in Asian culture and language. As a commerce student, I am interested in the Asian economy and how businesses in Asia operate. In the future, I would love to work in between China and Australia, helping with economic empowerment.

 

Besides studying and work, I also enjoy playing chess, reading, going for runs and travelling whenever the opportunity arises. I have been to Asia numerous times, not only to Nepal, South Korea but also to various cities in China such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guang Zhou!
