After writing about a conversational exchange between two sentient traffic lights in elementary school, it was clear that from a young age Jasmine was destined for a life of storytelling. While her natural talents lie in the written word she recognises the power and potential of multi-media production, carving out a space for her practice in photography and podcast creation. She has covered a diverse array of topics; from interviewing Brit rock band The Vaccines in their tour bus to chatting with the Consul General of Canada to Hong Kong and Macau, her interests are as wide in breadth as they are in-depth.

No matter where in the world she is, Jasmine has found that her best work comes from a place of introspection and candour. Her ambitious pursuit to live a life she can be proud of has never faltered.

High Tide is a Harbour Times-affiliated newsletter that provides briefings on Hong Kong’s current affairs and showcases insights on local policies, events, and communities. In the past, Harbour Times has published news briefings on our daily newsletter High Tide while providing deeper analysis and reportage on our website.

Our daily newsletters curate current affairs in the city, from policy news to the latest events in HK. Instead of doomscrolling, High Tide can save you time without sacrificing insight.

As a small media outlet with only two permanent staff members, I see it as most sustainable to focus our efforts on growing our newsletter to be a recognised source people refer to to get a snapshot of Hong Kong’s current affairs.
