Why did you want to become a Community Ambassador? 

I enjoy helping people and wish to have a positive influence in our community. I also like to promote social cohesion and community harmony and am always interested to know more about the people in Monash.

What is something interesting about you that you would like to share with the community?  

As a migrant from a vibrant and crowded city only several years ago, I experienced loneliness and helplessness at the early stage of my settlement in Australia. So I am aware of the challenges that people might experience. I believe encouragement and connection for new residents to the local community would alleviate the loneliness and worries while settling into a new place.
