Teresa Wu – Writer, Editor, and Blogger

La Jolla, CA

I love the Taiwanese American culture and the community that we’ve built around our shared identity.

wu.teresa1Who are you?

I’m a freelance writer and blogger focusing on college, food, travel, and women’s lifestyle. In addition to writing a biweekly column for the UCSD Guardian, my work has appeared in a variety of online publications, including Glamour, College Candy, and Lemondrop. Previously, I’ve interned at Glamour magazine, Mediabistro, Unigo, VaynerMedia, and AOL’s Mediaglow. I’m also co-creator of mymomisafob.com, a humor blog that publishes endearing emails, IMs, texts, and conversations from first-generation Asian mothers. The site reaches 50,000 monthly viewers.

What do you do?

I’m still a student at UCSD, but I freelance for a “living” — I do some blogging, copy-editing, and copywriting work. I spent an obsessive amount of time with the internet, but my favorite IRL hobby is frequenting new restaurants. I live in San Diego, California with four sorority girls and one mini-dachshund. (The burritos here are as good as they say.)

Why are you proud to be of Taiwanese heritage?

I’m 2nd-generation Taiwanese — and proud because I love my motherland. We are a small population of people who are doing exceptional and incredible things in spite of all adversity. I love the Taiwanese American culture and the community that we’ve built around our shared identity.

Any additional information you would like to share?

My blog is http://byteresawu.com, and I love stinky tofu like a true Taiwanese.
