I was born in Hong Kong and I lived here until I was six-years-old, at which point I moved to Taipei and attended an American international school for two years. I returned to Hong Kong when I was about eight or nine. I went to an international school in Kowloon for less than a year before moving to Sydney shortly after my 10th birthday. Australia is where I did most of my growing up, and a part of me will always consider that place my second home, and the people I met during this time my extended family.
I came back to Hong Kong after graduating high school in Sydney, and then studied at Lingnan University where I majored in history and minored in English.
Following my graduation, I worked at Media Monitors as a post production assistant, and then at Fluid as an editorial assistant. At the beginning of 2010, I began a six month internship at Time Out Hong Kong magazine.
I then completed a Master of Journalism programme at the Journalism and Media Studies Centre at The University of Hong Kong. After that I worked for CNN, Groupon, AsiaSpa magazine, and I’m now the web sub editor for SCMP’s Young Post.
