I'm Kylie, and I'm a photojournalist currently working at The Baltimore Banner as part of the 2023-2024 Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship program.

I'm drawn to photojournalism because of an innate curiosity to understand the complexities that make up our world. Everyone has something they want others to know, and I hope my work can serve as a bridge to empathy. As a Chinese adoptee, themes of belonging, identity and place are central to my storytelling.

Prior to joining the Banner as a fellow, I freelanced from my home in southeastern Massachusetts and interned at The Seattle Times and The Texas Tribune.

In May 2022, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts in communication. I'm a proud member of Asian American Journalists Association and Diversify Photo Up Next.

You can find my resume here.
