Biography

I have a deep appreciation for languages, particularly the Japanese language and culture, and studied it all throughout my high schooling. It was this love that led me to pursue a degree where I would study International Relations to learn more about the societies and histories of the various countries around the world whose cultures I am interested in, and how tools of foreign policy have shaped the trajectories of those countries.

 

I hope to use this exchange experience to expand my knowledge of Japanese domestic politics and come to understand their perspective on foreign affairs. In the future, I aspire to harness this understanding of the interests of both parties to contribute to the flourishing of Australian-Japanese relations.
