Biography

Ever since I was young, I have had an inquisitive and curious mind. This has led me to pursue a greater understanding of the languages and cultures that connect people across the globe, in particular Mandarin Chinese. I aim to combine my love for the Chinese language with my studies in Chemistry at Monash University to inspire change in offshore communities, in terms of addressing health and environmental issues. Outside of my studies, I am passionate about spending time outdoors, including swimming and hiking, stemming from my background growing up in regional Victoria. I am excited to explore the many scenic places Singapore has to offer and interact with Mandarin-speaking communities.

Skills & Expertise

  • Mandarin Chinese language
  • Organic and medicinal chemistry
  • Chemistry laboratory techniques
  • Academic and report writing
  • Anything outdoors: Hiking, swimming, camping and snorkelling

"This scholarship presents a wonderful opportunity for me to delve deeper into the heart of Chinese language and culture in Singaporean communities and acts as a bridge for connecting students like me to the greater, global world."
