I’m Serena, a Malaysian-Australian writer with a mole on my face and a story in my heart. I have written for The Independent, Vox, Refinery29, i-D, Insider, South China Morning Post, The Sydney Morning Herald, SBS, ELLE, and more. I'm based in London.
Last year, I left Australia in search of succulent cuisine and opportunities to babysit my tiny nieces. Since then, I've blossomed. I've taken to the Underground like a rodent, adapted to life without sunlight, and written for some of the most respected publications in the UK and US. I've reported on women in the High Arctic, erotic humiliation on TikTok, mixed race identity, the UK's last lighthouse keepers, video dating, Georgian oligarchs, and fashion experiments nobody needed.
I also travel solo (24 countries and counting) and shoot aerial photography. My book How Women See The World reeks of both.
