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.
