Introducing Amelia, 28, a journalist based in the US!
1. How would you describe the city you live in?
A suburban area just one hour outside of Washington, D.C. It's also about an hour away from Fairfax, Virginia. So I'm hoping to connect with more Uyghurs in my area!
2. What are you passionate about?
Good books, movies, and documentaries. I love to dance and I would really like to learn the Uyghur dances sometime. I feel like dance is definitely a part of my cultural DNA.
3. How have you spent the last year?
I have spent the last year working on my book, Made in China: How an Engineer Ended up in a Chinese Gulag Making Products for Kmart. It will be published by Algonquin Books in 2021. There is a chapter about the labor camps in East Turkestan.
