Biography

I was raised in a biracial household that valued curiosity and seeking new experiences. I spent my childhood studying in three different countries where I developed a strong interest in culture and how it shapes individuals. In my free time I play guitar, coach chess classes and spend hours cooking- I'm very much looking forward to the yum cha in Hong Kong!

I am a Commerce student at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Finance and Economics. I'm particularly interested in the explosive development of financial technology in Asia; I'm incredibly excited to learn what digitalised finance might mean for the way we bank and live here in Australia.
