I’m a medical student and writer with a background in both science and literature. I’m interested in the intersections of health, popular media and diversity.
Topics I’ve covered include: pop culture, literature, diversity and Asian-American representation.
I’m currently based in the Philadelphia area. My hobbies include: exploring and eating my way through whatever city I’m in, making DIY projects and going down internet rabbit holes.
A LITTLE BIT MORE
I started writing about books in 2009 and since then, I’ve written for Huffington Post, Los Angeles Review of Books, and more. In 2017, I rebranded my blog to By Jessica Yang. In addition to writing, I have a background in science and have been doing biomedical research in labs across the country.
