I’m a journalist from Hong Kong passionate about understanding 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. My writing has been published by the South China Morning Post, Quartz, Zolima CityMag, Capitol Weekly, The Nation, Prestige Hong Kong and others.
In addition to studying, I also serve as Online Editor-in-Chief and Board Member at NüVoices, an international editorial collective and non-profit 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 underwater climate change to pro-democracy protests. I’ve also written stories on international relations and politics in East Asia for the paper’s China Desk and This Week in Asia magazine. Highlights of my career include editing in a maximum security prison, trekking in the rain through abandoned ghost villages and covering massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong and the United States.
