Daniel Phan, 26. Walkey Young Australian Journalist of the Year 2011 finalist for the online category, writer, journalism/business graduate, postgrad arts student, second-generation refugee/boat person and more.
I have a keen interest in Asian-Pacific current affairs, global development, gender equality, refugees and migration, football and the promotion of peaceful coexistence and religious tolerance.
In addition to English – my first language – I am a fluent Vietnamese speaker and have an intermediate command of French, which I am currently relearning. When free, I try to devote time to learning Cham, an Austronesian tonal language native to modern-day Vietnam, and Khmer.
