Helen Yeung 希琳 (she/they) is a feminist researcher, PhD candidate, community organiser, and the founder of Migrant Zine Collective. Her activist work first began through grassroots organising in domestic and family violence prevention for migrant women and youth of colour. She is passionate about building spaces for marginalised communities through organising, conducting educational workshops, and designing culturally specific facilitation frameworks. She founded Migrant Zine Collective in 2017, a collective which aims to amplify the voices of migrant communities through activism, self-publishing and arts-based practices. Last year, she co-edited two publications “Anti-Racist Soup” and “Recipes for Resistance” which features written and creative pieces from the pandemic. Helen is currently completing her doctoral research at Auckland University of Technology under the School of Communications Studies. In 2020, she launched “Asian Feminist Project Aotearoa,” as part of her Masters, which aimed to facilitate and archive feminist conversations with six Asian migrant women through Instagram. Her research currently builds on investigating creative and transformative methodologies. Their guest editorial will be launching as the first piece of the 呼吸//Breathe series, which explores their experiences as a survivor and living through trauma.
