I AM ZOE
I have had a colourful twenty-three years, gaining a number of incredible life experiences. In 2009, my family and I moved to Jakarta, Indonesia for my father’s posting as the Second Secretary to the Ambassador.
In 2015, I graduated high school and worked four jobs: A medical receptionist for neurosurgeon, Dr Gauatm Khurana, a waitress at QT Hotel and The Cupping Room and as a Nanny for a single mother at DFAT. In 2016 I began studying a Bachelor of Education at Federation University in Ballarat before deferring and joining the Australian Army.
After injuring myself, resulting in a medical discharge, I enrolled in a Bachelor of Communications and Media at the University of Newcastle. At the beginning of 2020, I relocated back to Canberra where I transferred my studies to the University of Canberra.
Living overseas and traveling from a young age sparked an interest in travel and culture. I spent nine weeks travelling Sri Lanka, seven weeks travelling Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos and spent three weeks in Hawaii, USA. Furthermore, I spent a week cruising the Kalimantan rivers, hiking through the rainforests and meeting the local Orangutans.
Mentioned are only a handful of places I have visited and my desire for more travel and experience runs hot. The desire to travel and learn fuels my professional aspirations as a communications officer with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade or as a Foreign Correspondent or Travel Journalist.
