I’m a journalist from Hong Kong curious about people and societies.
Now pursuing master’s degrees in international affairs at the London School of Economics and Peking University, I’ve spent the past two years exploring identity, politics, gender, security and ethnic minorities in China and other parts of Asia.
Based in London and Hong Kong, I’m also Online Editor-in-Chief, and Board Member at NüVoices, an international collective of creators supporting women working on China subjects. I manage, edit, commission and produce all original content for our online magazine NüStories, which aims to amplify minority voices.
Previously, I was a reporter with the South China Morning Post covering Hong Kong and China. I specialised in writing narrative and multi-platform features on social issues, and covered everything from illegal housing, foreign sex workers and Sino-Korean relations to Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement. My writing has also been published by The Economist, Quartz, Zolima CityMag and others.
Highlights of my career include editing in a maximum security prison, trekking in the rain through abandoned ghost villages and covering massive street protests in Hong Kong and the United States.
