I hold a Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing from Swinburne University of Technology. I also hold a Diploma of Library and Information Services and work in a primary school library as the library technician.
I was born with congenital heart disease and suffered a stroke at 3 weeks old, and have had multiple corrective surgeries on my heart. The stroke left me with right-sided hemiplegia, with limited walking ability. Multiple corrective operations on my body have made me able to walk better, though I still have limited function of my arm.
