Issy grew up in London and graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in Chinese and History. She also spent her year abroad at Peking University in Beijing where she developed an interest in youth culture in East Asia.
After pandemic-related delays Issy eventually made it to Taiwan in 2021 on a Huayu Enrichment Scholarship. She carried on her Chinese learning for a year at National Taiwan University and soon realized she did not want to leave Taiwan anytime soon!
Her undergraduate dissertation was on rap music and censorship so she was very excited to land a job at Rti where she gets to explore the creative scene and social issues in Taiwan.
When not in the studio, you can find Issy spoiling her pomeranian Boo, obsessing over streetwear, and binging documentaries or the latest Korean dramas.
