She holds a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English literature and Industrial Relations, and a Masters of Commerce, majoring in Strategy and Marketing.
Off the table is a culmination of Anna’s two greatest loves- food and travel. Whilst she is unlikely to make the finalists on Master Chef, she considers herself to have significant food eating experience in many countries all around the world. She believes that tastes are made up of more than just flavors; they are shaped by memories and experiences. As a massive foodie, she loves being able to travel and explore the world of food in ways other than just dining experiences at restaurants, that connects her with people, places, histories and cultures.
