Hong Kong politics

At TIME Magazine, I covered Hong Kong politics extensively when the anti-government protests began in the summer of 2019. I attended dozens of marches and demonstrations, interviewing activists, protesters, lawmakers and pundits on how they view Hong Kong's rapidly changing political landscape.

Beyond breaking news articles, I also produced a number of features including a profile of activist Ventus Lau and how Hong Kong's famed subway system became an unwitting protest target. I broke reporting about "Glory to Hong Kong," a song that became known as the unofficial anthem of the political movement. As the first journalist to interview the song's composer, I saw my feature cited by local and foreign media outlets including the now-defunct Apple Daily, Epoch Times and Voice of America. I also contributed reporting to two magazine cover stories about the Hong Kong protests.
