While born in Australia, I was raised in Singapore and spent my primary schooling days there. At school, we would have regular Mandarin classes, but upon moving back to Australia, I soon fell out of touch with the language and my culture. Being first-generation migrants, my grandparents only spoke Chinese and so not being able to communicate with them was the impetus for my desire to rekindle my relationship with the language.
I enrolled in a Diploma in Languages (Chinese), alongside my Bachelor of Commerce, which I will be completing in Shanghai. I am certain this immersive experience will give me new perspectives and insight into the Chinese culture and lifestyle which I hope to share and subsequently encourage more young Australians to pursue international Asian experiences.
Having a love for food, I’ll be looking forward to eating my way through the diverse Chinese cuisine and exploring all the vast culinary options Shanghai has to offer!
