Sophia is one of the Logistics Coordinators for APW 2017.
She is a fourth year BA Asia-Pacific Studies and Business Administration at the ANU. At ANU, Sophia majors in Asia-Pacific Politics and the Mandarin language.
She was a delegate for APW in 2015, a Logistics Coordinator for APW in 2016, and is excited to continue this role in 2017. After the 2016 APW conference, she undertook a semester exchange program at the Chinese University of Hong Kong as part of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's New Colombo Plan.
Growing up in Newcastle NSW, Sophia developed a strong interest in humanities and global studies in high school, which is why she moved to Canberra to study with CAP. While at university, she continues to be challenged by the Mandarin language. While studying, she has developed a key interest in the development of Asian language education Australia-wide.
