Hi fellow UIF candidates!

I am Emilia, an education student from Macquarie University in Australia. I can be best described as an insightful child, or someone who has the child-like fascination with everything new in the world and can consolidate meanings and experiences from such fascination. This simply means I like to try as many new things as possible to better myself, from cooking strange ingredients such as mussels and duck for my diverse diet to taking university courses in over 40 majors so I could finally find my passion. I continue to foster my inquisition because I believe exploration is crucial to personal development, and to a positive outlook on life regardless of hardships. In the midst of such devastating events as the pandemic, humanity could still find comfort in knowing the achievements they could gain, the places they could explore, the people they could meet (even if only through a screen). Positivity and transformation is what society needs for welfare, thus I seek to encourage my beliefs amongst the public through my work as an educator.

I hope that gives you an adequate introduction of who I am. Nice to meet you!
