Previously I was a video fellow at McClatchy's paper the Sun News based in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where I shot and edited breaking news and feature videos. My video on the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in a local community in Myrtle Beach has won First Place, Feature Video at the South Carolina Press Association News Contest. Before that I interned with CNN Medical Unit where I wrote about scientific studies, substance abuse, fitness, HIV, and profiled people with significant life changes for CNN.com. On the TV side, I helped with editorial research and local shoots.
I graduated from Columbia Journalism School in 2016, where I studied video production, investigating health care and covering business and financial news. Prior to Columbia, I earned Bachelor of Social Sciences in psychology, First Class Honors, from the University of Hong Kong. During my senior year, I completed a 10,000-word undergraduate thesis on the effects of language learning strategies on brain activities and perception using EEG and computer programing. Results of the research project have been published in the proceeding of the 39th Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society.
