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, Glamour, SELF, Metro, The Sydney Morning Herald, SBS, Frankie, ELLE, Cosmopolitan, 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 of the ArcticTikTok-based erotic humiliation, performative body inclusivitymixed Asian identity, the UK's last lighthouse keepersvideo dating, meditative nautical knots, and political fashion experiments nobody asked me to do.

I also travel solo (24 countries and counting) and shoot aerial photography. My book How Women See The World is full of the stuff.
