As a ‘third culture kid’ with an upbringing all over Southeast Asia and a nationality inherited from Malaysia, England, and Australia, Leela Gray is proud to have an identity you can’t neatly pin down. Currently in her final year of a Bachelor degree at the University of Melbourne, Leela studies a double major of Political Science and Indigenous Studies. In her personal time, she works as a volunteer at global peacebuilding NGO Initiatives of Change and mutual aid project The Food Angels and has an ongoing role as a youth advisor for the Centre for Multicultural Youth. Leela enjoys baking, bike-riding, and finding warm pockets of sunshine to rest in. She’s a passionate advocate for human rights policy reform, racial literacy and community-building and aspires to achieve positive change through both top-down and bottom- up avenues in order to create a just and equitable future for all.
