Kirsten Han, Journalist & Writer

Headshot

I can write, photograph, shoot video and edit. I’ve been known to do some social media management, facilitate workshops, or serve as a production manager on projects.

I’m mainly based in my hometown of Singapore, but there’s nothing I like better than travelling, meeting people and telling their stories. There’s no greater privilege than to be invited into someone’s life, and be trusted with their memories and experiences.

I’ve covered stories from countries like SingaporeMalaysia, Greece and Scotland. My bylines have appeared in publications like the Guardian, Al Jazeera English, The Diplomat, Newsweek Europe, Waging Nonviolence and Southeast Asia Globe, among others. I’m currently the Singapore stringer for Deutsche Presse-Agentur. To see more of my work, just head over to my portfolio.

I’m most interested in human rights and social justice issues, wherever they are in the world. Outside of work, I volunteer as a founding member of We Believe in Second Chances, a campaign for the abolishment of the death penalty in Singapore.
