Hailing from humble roots in Sunderland, North East England, I have an academic interest in the politics and affairs of East Asia, where I have primarily focused on China, North Korea & South Korea. Recently, I graduated from Oxford University’s China Studies Program. Previously, I have lived in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Australia. In my spare time, I enjoy football, movies, music and travel.
I love to experience new things, discover new places and meet new people. I try keep an open and objective view of the world, even if that means challenging conventional understandings of things or questioning myself. I believe through sincere effort, hard work and determination, we are always capable of overcoming challenges and disadvantages in life.
