Biography

My current university studies (Korean Studies and International Relations), reflect my strong interest in Korean Studies academia, interpreting and translation, and diplomacy. I wish to cultivate a Korean Studies scholarship within Australia, and advance Australia-Korea bilateral ties. I aim to do this by translating various non-literary or literary works from Korean to English and promoting cultural exchange and engagement not limited to tourism and pop culture.

 

Aside from my studies, I like to run, spend time in nature, keep a reflective diary, help organise events or other initiatives at university, and watch documentaries. I also like to learn about other languages and a vast range of topics by accessing podcasts, lectures, news, fiction, or non-fiction in English or Korean.
