Biography

I’m super excited to be experiencing Asia and developing my understanding of how Australia can move forward in relations and also the technology industry. I’m personally a mixed-race person and have always had a massive interest in Asian cultures. I currently study Mechatronics Engineering and Computer Science, and my hobbies from all the way back at preschool have been robotics-based, inspiring me to pursue a future in problem solving and technology. I hope during my exchange experience to broaden my understanding of Asia-Australia relations and cultural differences, and also explore how Japan engages in technology development to further my own engineering skills. I’m really excited to explore Japan, learn the language and eat the food!
