Mochi Magazine


mochi mag– empowering asian american teenage girls.

i got involved with mochi last spring as the creative director. it’s a magazine started by three friends who realized a need for a magazine specific to asian american girls. they envisioned a publication run by asian american girls for asian american girls, a magazine that might serve as the “older sister you never had.”

that vision quickly materialized into a nation-wide collection of all-volunteer staff who contributed time, talent, and skills to the cause. i am super excited to be part of the crew. unfortunately, with first-year teaching, i was struggling to devote time to the magazine, and it existed as little more than my email signature. but now that i’m finally getting more control over my time, i have been working on the new blog. tweaking, redesigning, reorganizing, and adding all sorts of snazzy features.

the other girls have done an amazing job. james kyson lee from heroes. vienna teng. disney channel’s brenda song. an exclusive scoop from gossip girl’s nan zhang. the list goes on.
