Jiaxuan (Josie) Wu is a journalism student completing her master’s degree at the University of British Columbia. As a newbie entering the world of news reporting, Josie has always found herself inclined to stories with cultural significance. She wants to hear from communities that are often marginalized in mainstream media.
Josie moved alone from China to Toronto at the age of 15. She graduated from Western University with a bachelor’s degree in Media Studies and decided to explore journalism— a career that she thought would be challenging for non-native English speakers.
Now, she is enjoying every minute of writing about things that she truly cares about.
