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, Dazed, Insider, South China Morning Post, The Sydney Morning Herald, SBS, ELLE, and more. I live in London.
In 2019, I left Australia in search of county fayres and opportunities to babysit my tiny nieces. Since then, I have taken to the Underground like a confident rodent and learnt to gird my loins against the lack of sunlight. I have also 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 like to travel solo (24 countries and counting) and shoot aerial photography. My book How Women See The World reeks of both.
