What issue in Asia or the Pacific regions are you most passionate about/intrigued by?
The issue within Asia and the Pacific regions that intrigues me the most is the continuing effect of colonialism. It’s a complex issue in which we still see its political, economic, and cultural effects today on places such as Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Taiwan.
If you could live anywhere in Asia or the Pacific regions, where would it be and why?
I would live in Singapore! I’ve always wanted to experience life in a bustling multicultural city with both Eastern and Western influences. The warm weather all-year round is also quite appealing!
What is your favourite quote?
I have a lot of favourite quotes but the one most relevant to the APW Conference is “a mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” When we challenge ourselves with new experiences, our perspectives widen, and I hope this Conference will help grow your mind in ways you might have never experienced otherwise.
