Biography

As someone from a multicultural background who is now studying a Bachelor of Biomedicine, I am deeply passionate about representation and diversity in healthcare. In the future, I would love to combine my interest in medicine and politics to work in humanitarian aid, in areas such as international cooperation and crisis response. Particularly in global healthcare, I want to address the increasing disparity in access to and provision of medical services across Asia-Australia. Hence, I aim to collaborate with medical professionals, to improve the delivery of healthcare services in diverse communities.

 

Having also volunteered with numerous organisations that work with children, I have a strong passion for youth development; encouraging leadership and empathy is something I really value. I also love exploring cuisines and testing out different recipes, so I can very often be found in the cooking section of various bookshops.
