Katherine Wei

Katherine Wei is an editorial assistant at The Diplomat. Previously, she was a bilingual reporter at The China Post — Taiwan’s oldest English newspaper — for two years. She covered the local political scene and wrote supplements and feature stories on unique expat communities in Taiwan. She has a passion for social movement reporting, having flown to Bangkok to cover the Red Shirts movement and to Hong Kong for the marches occurring before the Occupy Central movement. Some of her best work was completed during Taiwan’s tumultuous Sunflower Movement last spring, staying for weeks with students that occupied the Legislature in protest of a controversial deal inked with China. Katherine’s articles were often used by the Asia News Network as a representative voice of Taiwan’s current events. Katherine is now a graduate student at UC Berkeley, studying narrative writing and new media, also producing news stories on Oakland and Richmond.
