Australian Government – Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade New Colombo Plan (NCP) Scholarship recipient and ambassador
Intern at the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Korea, South Korea and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Oceania Regional Office, Fiji
“I had an amazing year abroad in 2016 – studying, gaining experience, making work connections – and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of the New Colombo Plan program and to share my experiences.
“In Seoul, I helped facilitate a seminar on the incoming new anti-bribery legislation. With IUCN, I took part in the organisation’s World Conservation Congress in Hawaii where 10,000 delegates discussed pressing environmental issues. I was able to combine my interests in business and geography while getting insights into how important the Indo-Pacific region is to Australia’s future.”
