About Me

My name is Tammy Kwan and I have recently completed my Master in Journalism degree at @jmschku. Last year, I graduated from @ubc with a Bachelor in Arts degree with a major in History– specializing in Imperial China and Pre-Modern Europe. 

My passion for storytelling derives from my interest and curiosity in happenings around the world. I love nothing more than researching, investigating, and conducting interviews to create effective stories to share with other people.

I believe that I am a versatile individual who has an aptitude for adapting to new environments. During the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong, I was interviewing student protestors and taking photographs at 2 a.m. on the streets of Admiralty. A few weeks later, I was sitting in the cozy office of CNN as the winter intern for CNN Travel. These experiences have allowed me to gain different perspectives on how to become a compelling writer.

To sum it up, I am enthusiastic about communicating and connecting with others. Hopefully I’ll be able to do this while eating something delicious– food is also another passion of mine. 🙂
