"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."


Undertaking a degree in International Relations and Law at the University of Queensland has given me the chance to develop a passion for international law and public policy. My volunteering work in agriculture has developed my interests in global food production as well as ecological sustainability. In future, I hope to use my degree to influence social, political and legal development for environmental sustainability.
