    Kimberly Wong | Covid Diaries: NJ to China, the Everyday Experience of a Shanghai Citizen

    Today I interview Kimberly Wong, a Fashion Designer who originally hails from New Jersey but has resided in Shanghai for the last decade. Her daily Covid-19 journal installments have captured what everyday life looks like as a Chinese resident since the outbreak. Her on the ground reports have captured many readers and major publications online wanting to know the typical life and experience currently in China. In this episode, I sat with her to discuss the novel journey back to Shanghai during the COVID era.
