Patricia Cheung is a Taiwan-based journalist working with Maritime Fairtrade. She is from Hong Kong and is currently studying for her master’s degree in National Taiwan University, majoring in Building and Planning.
Being a foreigner who started her new life in Taiwan for some years, she finds it is of her utmost interest in observing another Chinese-speaking place which indeed is quite different from her hometown, yet somehow similar — the colonial past, the diversity of culture and being the frontier of ideological conflict.
Patricia’s works, mainly on topics like travel and culture, appeared in Taiwan media, such as the Commonwealth Magazine and the News Lens. She currently works as a research assistant on topics of migration and diaspora at university, and as a freelance copywriter who sometimes interviews business owners.
Patricia also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Science, majoring Geography and Resource Management from the Chinese University of Hong Kong; and a Master’s degree in Translation from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Before coming to Taiwan, she has been in the field of civic education for almost a decade where story-telling has always been an important part of her career. During her free time, she loves travelling and exhibitions, and of course, is always ready to tell stories.
