Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) - Queensland Branch says
Presented by Jordana Colvin

When you are a young Australian woman who suddenly finds herself in the middle of deep suburban Japan, by default, you are an outsider – better known as a ‘gaijin’. Jordana draws upon her experiences and thoughts of her time as an exchange student in Nagoya, Japan, and how young people fall into the equation of Australia’s engagement with the Indo-Pacific region.

About the speaker

Jordana is the the recipient of the 2015 AIIA Queensland Asia-Pacific Scholarship. She is in her third year at Griffith University studying a Bachelor of Asian Studies, with majors in Public Policy and Japanese language. She spent six months attending Nanzan University in Nagoya, Japan as part of her scholarship program, before interning at the Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Tokyo. She is also heavily involved in volunteering for UN Youth Queensland, an organisation which aims to engage young Australians in global leadership initiatives. Jordana hopes to work in policy development after graduating university in 2017, focusing on youth engagement between Australia and Asia.
