SUN-jun-ah - SUH-thee-en

 

As you can see, I was once a celebrity, albeit briefly. 

 

I've reported from the U.S., Chile, Bolivia, Turkey, Cyprus, India, Nepal, and Japan.

 

I am a writer currently earning my MFA in fiction at the Iowa Writers' Workshop. I am a Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow and an alumna of the Clarion Writers' Workshop.

Before Iowa, I lived in Mumbai, where I was the Asia editor and correspondent for the digital magazine OZY.com. My reporting from India was honored by the South Asian Journalists' Association. Prior to that, I covered Silicon Valley and led features reporting for OZY in the Bay Area.

I attended Yale, where I was editor-in-chief of the Yale Globalist. I learned the newspaper trade at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Boston Globe.
