About

DSCF5085

My goals are to grow through learning; contribute positively to my community; and collaborate with creative people and organisations. I am currently studying a Masters of Peace & Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney because I want to understand what is happening in this world and why; and how we can replace apathy with empathy.

No matter what I’m doing, I aim to have as much fun as possible. This includes, but is not limited to, singing, dancing, playing dress ups, laughing at myself/my own jokes, daydreaming and stretching.

The values that are most important to me are creativity, compassion, truth, beauty and courage.
