WELCOME TO A CITY BY THE BAY
I’m Leslie, a girl who has lived and grown up in three countries, and in cities all by the bay. I’m American and Taiwanese, and currently studying in Tokyo, Japan.
I started this blog to share my experiences growing up in different environments: I was born in California, but I spent my last few years of middle school and high school in Taiwan. Now, I’m currently living in Tokyo, Japan. This blog consists of my musings, narratives, commentary that reflects my opinions and my thoughts. In a sense, I’m an American expat but I still struggle to refer to myself as one because a crucial part of my growing up was spent in my parent’s home country, Taiwan.
I write for a multitude of publications so my other more business-oriented or professional work will also be showcased on here as well. Some of the publications I write for are:
- Spoon University: A food publication created by students for students.
- The Metric: A student-run newspaper that reflects global issues from a personal perspective.
- Schoolynk: A publication for current and hopeful international students in Japan.
- HerCampus: An online publication for women, by women.
If you are interested in specific content, have any questions, or dropping by Tokyo/Taiwan, please let me know! If there is something in particular you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to leave comments or contact me through the blog’s features.
For business inquiries for freelance writing, I can be contacted through LinkedIn, email, or through this blog for additional information. I am currently accepting clients at the moment and please let me know if you would like to collaborate!
Thank you for stopping by!
