About me

People often ask how I got interested in China. Back when I was studying BA History, I chose modules that covered modern Chinese history, and I decided to start learning Mandarin. And then things got out of hand and I ended up doing an MA in Chinese Studies.

After working in fundraising in UK-based NGOs for several years, I wanted a change – so decided to move to Shanghai.

I’m writing about the things I see, the things I do, the things I miss and the things I’m glad not to miss out on.
