I am particularly interested in all levels of education and bringing Asia to the Australian classroom through new and innovative ways. I want to focus my life career on strengthening Australia-China relations through the education and cultural diplomacy. However, I am also very interested in other parts of Asia, particularly South-East Asia and South Asia. I also have keen interest in sustainability and development in Asia.

I believe that we can strengthen the relationship with Asia through promoting Asia Literacy. Asia literacy is a key element of the Australia in the Asian Century White Paper released by the Australian Government in 2012. According to the White Paper:

'Australia needs to equip our students with the knowledge and understanding of the nations in Asia they need to be active in the region. Asia-relevant capabilities are critical for the Asian century. They are the fundamental skills and abilities that will drive Australia’s economy and jobs in the years ahead. Our greatest responsibility is to invest in our people through skills and education'.

My vision is to promote Asia Literacy within schools, universities, workplaces and the community.
