Extra information:

I am a video journalist specialising in EU affairs. Before joining Vieuws in 2015, I was a production assistant at BBC South East Today. I have worked as a freelance journalist for the Guardian and a news anchor for the Taiwanese radio station ICRT, where I co-hosted and produced the magazine show ‘China Watch’. I previously wrote articles on film, mobile phones and personal finance for the consumer website Recombu.

In 2013, I was awarded a Scott Trust Bursary to study broadcast journalism at the University of Sheffield, where I gained an MA with distinction. I have a degree in English Literature and German from Oxford University. 

Outside of journalism, I have worked as an English teacher, proofreader and translator from Mandarin Chinese to English.
