I'm Kylie, a photojournalist currently based in Seattle, Washington. This fall, I am the photo intern for The Seattle Times.

I'm drawn to photojournalism because of an innate curiosity to understand our world and the people in it — and to share what I find with others. Through these answers, I believe we can further celebrate our common humanity. As a Chinese adoptee, I am particularly interested in exploring identity and what it means to belong.

Prior to joining The Seattle Times, I was the summer photo fellow at The Texas Tribune. In May 2022, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts in communication. I'm from the south coast of Massachusetts and am a proud member of Diversify Photo Up Next, AAJA, NPPA and SPJ.
