Sabina Lim is passionate about using economics to deliver sustainable, social outcomes. She is currently completing a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Melbourne and is excited to see the world's brightest minds coming together to discuss problems and solutions at the OECD Forum in Paris.
Sabina attended the Economic and Social Outlook Conference in 2015 which sparked an interest in policy and diplomacy. As part of the Global Voices Research Fellowship Sabina will investigate the impact Social Impact Investing (SII) on addressing the service gap in aged care and health services in Australia.
Alongside studying, Sabina is a part of the Melbourne Microfinance Initiative, a student run organisation which offers pro-bono consulting to small Microfinance Institutions in the South Pacific. She also volunteers with Impact Investing Australia.
Sabina is currently reading The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Nicholas Taleb and The Festival of Insignificance by Milan Kundera and she loves to travel. Some of her favourite places to visit include the Galapagos Islands and Norway, for the beautiful scenery and diverse range of wild life. New York is also a favourite. Sabina enjoys the constant hum and buzz of the city.
