BIO

Zeyi is a freelance journalist, podcaster, researcher based in New York City. He usually reports on immigration, race, LGBT+ issues, and everything related to China.

 

With two master's degrees in journalism and international affairs from Columbia University, Zeyi has built his skillsets to approach public governance challenges from both the journalistic and the policy perspectives:

 

  • As a journalist, Zeyi is well-trained in writing, audio production, video production, and social media. 

 

  • On the policy side, he has conducted academic research on migration, climate change, and social welfare policies in the global context.

 

Born and raised in Wuhan, China, Zeyi is native in Mandarin, which enables him to talk to the Chinese immigrants and diaspora in NYC and get access to a community living in limbo between two world powers. He will be easily found on the streets of Chinatown and Flushing. Sometimes for reporting, always for food.
