Jin oversees the IWMF’s grants and awards programs. They are excited to support the IWMF’s international community as well as expand the IWMF’s impact footprint. Jin is a co-director of AAJA’s Women and Non-Binary Voices affinity group and a co-founder of Chinese Storytellers, a collective empowering Chinese non-fiction content creators.

Growing up in a Chinese journalism family, Jin was drawn to writing and the smell of newspaper at an early age. They first studied journalism at Tianjin University of Sport and became a sports reporter for local newspapers. After leaving China in 2011, they covered London Olympics as a correspondent, researched nation-wide marketing for NBC Sports, and worked for the Pulitzer Center as a communications and inclusion manager.

They hold a master’s degree in international sport management from the State University of New York, College at Cortland and London Metropolitan University. In their spare time, Jin continues their sports journey as a mediocre crossfitter.
