I am profoundly honored to be a finalist for the Study Queensland Alumni Award. Queensland was my academic home for six transformative years, where I earned master’s degrees in Chinese translation and education from the University of Queensland and Griffith University.
Through rigorous studies and cultural immersion, I honed expertise in Chinese translation and deepened my understanding of education dynamics. This diverse knowledge enables meaningful contributions to academia and culture.My dual master’s degrees represent a commitment to excellence, providing a comprehensive understanding of Chinese translation and education methodologies, along with vital cross-cultural experiences.
In tandem with studies, I actively engaged with the community. From participating and leading Australia China Youth Association (ACYA initiatives fostered cultural exchange, while teaching at the multiple Chinese Language Centers shared the richness of language and culture. Volunteering at Chinese festivals further bridged cultural gaps.
Consideration for the Study Queensland Alumni Award is a true honor, reflecting enriching years in Queensland. This experience, beyond academics, shaped my cultural awareness and community involvement. My heartfelt gratitude to ACAA for this recognition. Together, we strengthen bonds between Queensland and its global alumni community.

Education Committee and Environment Committee Member, University of Melbourne Student Union
The University of Melbourne Alumna
During my time at the University of Melbourne, I wholeheartedly dedicated myself to improving the lives and wellbeing of international students.
As a member of the Education Committee of UMSU, I actively advocated for educational reforms beneficial to international students, especially those from China. During my tenure, I successfully assisted the team in introducing ‘WAMnesty’—a policy that covers more than 50,000 students, allowing them to achieve better Weighted Average Marks (WAM) during the COVID-19 lockdown, mitigating the unprecedented impact of the pandemic on their academic performance. Furthermore, our team successfully advocated a significant amount of emergency support funding for international students, leading the university to allocate approximately 16 million dollars to assist those facing financial hardships.
Working in the Welfare Department of the UMSU International, I did my utmost to meet the needs of international students, organising activities from providing advice on visa issues to improving students’ mental health and wellbeing.
As the Events Director (2020-2021) and Marketing Officer (2019-2020) of the MCLS, I committed myself to enhancing the interaction between law students and legal professionals, establishing a platform for cultural and professional exchange between Australia and China.
Meanwhile, serving as the Treasurer (2020-2021) and Vice President (2019-2020) of MLMSA, I focused on sustainable and inclusive financial policies, ensuring that the events and activities were accessible to students of all backgrounds. I was the first Chinese student in the association’s history to be elected as Vice President. This position enabled me to amplify the voices and concerns of Chinese students, adding a layer of representation that was previously underrepresented in MLMSA’s leadership.
I also became the first Chinese student chosen as the Melbourne Law Masters’ Student Representative for the GLSA, advocating for the concerns and views of Chinese law students and further promoting a conducive environment for Chinese-Australian cross-border legal discussions.
Additionally, I volunteered as a teacher in the weekly free KWM Chinese Language Classes and have been invited for several years to serve as a judge in the Chinese-English Negotiation Competition. In total, I accumulated over 2,000 hours of volunteer work during my Master of Laws program.
Currently, I continue to contribute as a mentor in the University of Melbourne’s mentor program, sharing experiences and advice with current students. Simultaneously, I am studying a second graduate-level course at the University of Melbourne and again elected to be a member of UMSU, further demonstrating my ongoing commitment to the student community.
Outside of campus activities, I am proud to be one of the founding members of Pink Phoenix, a dragon boat club composed of breast cancer survivors and supporters. This initiative provides an excellent platform for emotional and physical rehabilitation for breast cancer survivors. By promoting traditional Chinese water sports, we not only strive to spread Chinese cultural heritage but also offer a strong support network for breast cancer survivors in Australia. The club symbolizes resilience and unity, empowering individuals to find strength and community through sports.
It is my heartfelt belief that community service is not a one-off activity, but a lifelong commitment. My aim has always been to make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of others. I am passionate about continuously bettering myself so that I can, in turn, serve my community more effectively.

Asian Business Association of Whitehorse
University of Melbourne Alumna
Leading as the President of ABAW has been an incredible journey, one filled with achievements that I hold close to my heart. Through our collective efforts, we’ve made a significant impact on the local economy, generating $4.5 million through our projects. What truly warms my heart is the fact that over 350,000 people have attended our ABAW events, showing the power of bringing communities together.
Charity work has always been a passion of mine, and I’m proud to say that we’ve raised over $50,000 for charitable causes. One of the most memorable moments was organising a group of 200 marathon runners to participate in the Melbourne Marathon for charity – a testament to what we can achieve when we unite for a common good.
But beyond the numbers, my greatest joy comes from promoting Chinese culture in Australia and fostering cross-cultural cooperation and understanding. This has always been a personal mission, and I’m thrilled to see it thriving within our community.
Above all, I want to be a beacon of hope for Chinese migrants, both those who have just arrived and those who have been here for generations. I want them to feel a sense of belonging and unity in this beautiful country we call home.
My journey with ABAW has been a remarkable one, and I hope to continue making a positive impact on our society, celebrating diversity and creating a brighter future for all.
