I’m a postgraduate student in the London School of Economics (LSE) with an avid interest in philosophy, effective altruism (EA), and entrepreneurship. Currently, I’m pursuing an MSc in Philosophy of the Social Sciences.
Prior to LSE, I was the Head of Operations and Content Strategy of Jumpstart Magazine, Hong Kong’s first and only print magazine focusing on the startup ecosystem. I oversaw every aspect of the company, including content production, marketing strategies, expansion to Singapore and China, and the development of new revenue models.
Previously, I read moral and political philosophy at the University of Hong Kong (HKU), where I was the top student two years in a roll. While I was an undergraduate, I co-founded Effective Altruism Hong Kong (EAHK), the first EA chapter in Asia. We organised the first EA Global Conference in Asia, 5 giving games, 8 keynote presentations, 20 monthly community meetups, and more, educated over 300 students about EA.
