I’m a writer from Hong Kong curious about people and societies.
Now pursuing master’s degrees in international affairs at Peking University and the London School of Economics and Political Science, I’ve spent the past two years exploring identity, politics, gender, security and ethnic minorities in China and other parts of Asia. My writing has been published by The Economist, Quartz, The South China Morning Post and Zolima CityMag, among others.
Based in London and Hong Kong, I serve as Board Member and Online Editor-in-Chief of NüVoices, an international collective supporting women working on China subjects. I manage, edit, commission and produce all the content in our online magazine NüStories, which aims to amplify minority voices. Proficient in Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese and conversational Japanese, I also freelance as a video news assistant for The Associated Press in London.
Previously, I was a staff 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 rooftop housing, foreign sex workers and Sino-Korean relations to Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.
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.
