is a writer born and raised in Hong Kong's concrete jungle. Now living in Scotland, she's writing beneath a foreign sky. Though the sky, once surrounded by monstrous high-rises, has always been foreign to her. Many of her works are shadowed by Hong Kong's urban landscape, people, and protests.
She writes mostly in English. As a second language, it is distanced from her––not too far away, but not too close––providing a sanctuary for expressing all that might be deemed "overly sentimental" in her mother tongue.
She has two MSc in Creative Writing and Literature & Modernity from The University of Edinburgh. She received the Professor Shirley G.L Lim Poetry Writing Scholarship 2018 (First Prize) and was the 2nd prize winner of the RTHK Radio 3 Hong Kong's Top Story Competition 2020. Her manuscript As Wild As was shortlisted for the Magma Poetry Pamphlet Competition 2022. She is the winner of the Verve Poetry Festival Competition 2023, judged by Kim Moore.
The sound of her Cantonese name is composed of colours: blue and green.
