Biography

I am a third-year International Business student with a passion for the Asian market and business culture. My interest in Asia comes from my Chinese heritage and growing up in an Asian community where I learnt Japanese and Mandarin from a young age. This led to my current study and love of Japanese language and culture.

 

Studying international business has inspired me to combine my interests in culture and business to pursue a career in cross-cultural management consulting. In the future, I wish to help Australian businesses who want to expand to the Asian market, especially to Japan, overcome the cultural barriers they face and thrive.

 

Outside of studying, I am a passionate volunteer for St John Ambulance. I also play the clarinet and enjoy all kinds of music.

 "I would love to improve business relations between Japan and Australia, with Australian businesses having an understanding of Japanese culture and the importance of adapting to cultural differences."
