Zoe is a Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics/Diploma of Languages student at La Trobe University in Melbourne. She has recently returned from studying Indonesian and economics for a year at UGM in Yogyakarta as a 2018 New Colombo Plan Scholar. During her exchange year Zoe also undertook internships at the Australian Consulate-General Surabaya and Pusat Studi Sosial Asia Tenggara. She hopes that by being an economist with a deep understanding of the Indonesian economy, and an ability to communicate with stakeholders in both English and Bahasa, that she will be able to play an active role in bringing our two countries closer. Zoe joined AIYA as she believes it is a fantastic organisation that provides a platform for passionate youth to connect and learn from each other while advancing Australia-Indonesia relations.
