My name is Maggie.
I am a journo grad from the Journalism and Media Studies Centre,
at University of Hong Kong in 2016.
Also an alum of UCL’s School of Slavonic and East European studies,
where I read political science and graduated in 2014 (in pre-Brexit era).
In between my jaunts here and there, I held a short gig as a reception assistant manager in Bagan, Myanmar; worked as an assistant editor for an adventure travel mag called Action Asia in Hong Kong; produced video news packages as a freelancer and volunteered at various cultural events as a host, docent and video assistant.
In April 2017, I embarked on a 14-month journey that took me across the vast continent of Asia towards Europe,
passing through the Himalayas, India, Central Asia, Turkey and Russia. During this time, I walked, hiked, swam, cycled and rediscovered my creative and musical side and published my poetry booklet.
In August 2018, I started working for my friend’s travel and social networking app – GoBakPak,
as a content writer for backpackers traveling in South East Asia. It eventually led me to rediscover my love for the practice of yoga and sharing it with others.
From March – September 2019, I worked as a post production coordinator at Shootsta – a video production start up in Hong Kong where I learned a lot about video editing, project and account management.
Since 2020, I’ve been providing video production services on a freelance basis. I am also writing and directing my first short film, which will be released by the beginning of 2021.
When I travel, I document things that are often overlooked.
When I feel inspired, I rant and call it poetry. You can find some of them here on my site.
