I’m Serena, a Malaysian-Australian writer with a mole on my face and a story in my heart. I've written for The Independent, CNN, Vox, Refinery29, i-D, Dazed, frankie, Insider, South China Morning Post, Harper's Bazaar, SBS, ELLE, and so on.
I'm based in London.
In 2019, I left Australia in search of county fayres and opportunities to babysit my nieces. Since then, I've taken to the Underground like a rodent and learned to gird my loins against the lack of sunlight.
I've reported on women in the High Arctic, erotic humiliation on TikTok, a chef in Antarctica, mixed race identity, the last lighthouse keepers, video dating, Georgian oligarch rappers, and fashion experiments nobody asked for.
I'm currently studying an MA in Dramaturgy & Writing for Performance at Goldsmiths.
