Where I live: Singapore
What I do: I want to tell science & tech stories about the world around us/the world that we live in.
Why science journalism: I love how I’m constantly learning new things. And I’m always humbled how journalism offers a “backstage pass” to people and places you wouldn’t otherwise be able to speak with or see.
Suggestions for newcomers:
- Read voraciously, especially stories from publications that you’d like to write for.Read widely, because you never know what might spark an idea!
- Network. Writing can be a lonely endeavor and having a community of like-minded people can certainly help that — for advice, and to commiserate and cheer you on
- Don’t be afraid to pitch — part of an editor’s job is to look for good ideas. You are not bothering them.
