Monica Zhuang


Hi, my name is Monica Zhuang, I’m a Chinese journalist living in Milan.

I am active in art, literature, film, music, and digital culture fields, and currently collaborating with tibicon as a culture consultant, translator, and freelance writer.

I see myself as a bridge between western and oriental cultures since I’ve lived on both sides, and I am always curious about the roots of certain phenomena.

What am I most passionate about?

Gender inequality topics; being able to use my words and voice to reduce the gender inequality gap would be my lifelong pursing purpose.
