I'm Yi-Hwa.

I'm a multimedia journalist who has worked across print and digital publishing, with a wealth of experience in social media, film, television, live radio, and event hosting, as well as countless collaborations with international brands, through more than 12 years in the media industry. 


A half-Taiwanese, half-Lebanese American citizen, I currently live in the cosmopolitan city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. For the past four years, I've been the Editor-in-Chief of one of the biggest and fastest-growing women's lifestyle magazine brands in the Middle East. 


In addition to my published writing, I've produced hundreds of photoshoots, videos, and more, on everything from fashion to fitness, lifestyle, food, and more, and I've been involved in every aspect, from conceptualization to styling, prop sourcing and creation, illustration, direction, editing and sharing.


An avid photographer and artist, and a keen traveller, I'm also an advocate for living a healthy and active lifestyle. I have a firm belief in living with a sense of adventure, and whether it's singing, painting, dancing, boxing, parkour, surfing, yoga, or paddleboarding (and everything in between!), I love anything that awakens your creativity, gets you moving, and excites your soul.
