Moya appreciated the opportunity to think, write and argue about the big issues that affect both Australian and international society. Her love for politics has taken her on an exciting journey. “You’re more likely to be successful if you pursue what you love, rather than what you imagine to be a sensible choice.”

Executive Officer (Timor-Leste), Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
