Born in Hong Kong and educated in the UK, I studied Modern Languages at the University of Oxford as an undergraduate, majoring in Spanish & Portuguese. After several internships in financial institutions in the UK and abroad, I hope to combine my experience working in business with my passionate interest and studies in Latin American politics, culture and people.
