Emily has been studying Indonesian for seven years. Over the years, Emily has participated in NAILA, and has also won a 3-day scholarship to visit the Indonesian Embassy in Canberra. At Monash University, Emily is in her third year of her degrees in Laws and Global Studies, including a major in Indonesian Studies. Emily is most interested in Australia’s perceptions of Indonesia at the grassroots level (and vice versa). Emily is excited to coordinate administrative tasks so that AIYA events can run smoothly and the sharing of culture between the two countries can be heightened. In her free time, Emily enjoys travelling, playing softball and drinking teh kotak.
