About


Hey, I'm Jessica. 

I’m a medical student, freelance culture writer, and blogger based between Philadelphia and New York. As a writer, I explore the intersections of race, especially Asian American, media and medicine. I'm also interested in how media can make healthcare and medicine more accessible.

In my free time, I enjoy finding places to eat, walking around in bookshops, and exploring places. I'm known for stress-baking chocolate chip cookies, taking my camera everywhere (sometimes, I'll be shameless and stand up to get a good photo of food) and recommending books to everyone.

As a writer, I’ve written for publications such as Los Angeles Review of Books, Quirk Books Blog, Huffington Post and more. To read some of my writing, you can go here.
