Biography

At the end of 2022, I will graduate from the University of New South Wales, where I currently work as Managing Editor of the student paper. I have a strong passion for bridging knowledge and understanding gaps between people. My articles have inspired reform within the newsroom, as well as across the university, with more transparency being implemented in the University’s Course Handbook.

 

I study International Studies and Media, which has triggered my interest in Asia’s development and relationship with Australia. As a Westpac Scholar, I aspire to share my local experiences and promote mutual understanding between Asia and Australia. I look forward to my exchange at the National University of Singapore in pursuit of a unique cultural immersion, where I am eager to visit many art galleries and museums.
