Siyu LEI (2019)
University of Missouri
After two years working in the development and digital communication sectors in Yangon, Myanmar, Siyu LEI is propelled to focus on the emerging countries in the world, and how information in the age of technology changes the lives of the poor. Siyu graduated with Journalism and Economics dual degrees, and has since marinated her experience working for established media outlets like NPR and Dow Jones with what she sees and does daily in Southeast Asia and beyond. When she's not reading and researching about developing countries, she's working on the Mandarin feminism podcast she founded, which has mounted more than 10,000 subscribers and 500,000 downloads. Siyu is 24 years old and from China.
