About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in February 2017. I recently graduated with a B.A. in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley, primarily interested in economic development in emerging markets. In my free time, I'm enthusiastic about discovering and creating meaning in everyday things through graphic design, photography, storytelling and collaborative innovation.

Growing up in an international city like Hong Kong, I embrace connectivity and knowledge sharing as my core values, and I'm deeply attracted by Wikimedia’s mission and the unique values it brings to our community.

My work

Working alongside the Global Reach Team, I contribute by researching and helping shape our partnerships strategy for Latin America, Asia, Middle East and Africa. I keep the team's written communication up-to-date to both internal and external audiences, outline and draft relevant documentations to support our ongoing initiatives. Besides, I collaborate with internal teams to better understand our existing and potential readers in the emerging regions served by the foundation.
