JEMIMAH JAMES WEI |
I’m with you in Rockland.

Born and based in Singapore, Jemimah is a full time graduate student, host, and writer behind lifestyle blog jemmawei.com. Launched in 2007 originally as an avenue for writing and expression, it has now grown to also encompass photography and personal thoughts on travel, literature, fashion, and cats.

Jemimah worked as a copywriter & social media strategist for Spanish-American based firm Havas Media, the sixth largest communications group worldwide, for three years from 2011 to 2013, and was also the Social Media Community Manager for Air Asia Expedia’s Backick in 2012. Over the years, she has also written for multiple international and local brands, such as Volkswagen Singapore, Clarks, DBS, AirFrance, Singtel, and Coca Cola, amongst others.

However, her passion still lies in creative writing. She has been published in various online journals, and you can find some of her short stories in Singaporean bookstores. She was featured as one of the youngest local authors at the Singapore’s Writers Festival 2013, and was one of the contributing authors for From The Belly of the Cat, curated by Stephanie Ye and currently available in store at BooksActually. Jemimah was also invited to guest write for Ethos Books and Wong Su Ann’s Equatorial Sunshine, which was launched mid-2015. Most recently, one of her short stories – “George”, made Honorable Mention in the Best New Singaporean Short Stories 2015 edition. She maintains a book blog over on goodreads, and you can read her here. You can also pick up Jemma’s curated reads in the #JemmaRecommends shelf, available in all three terminals in Changi Airport Times bookstore outlets, a passion project between Jemma and Times Bookstore Singapore. As of 2015, she is under graduate scholarship and currently doing her Masters in English, Creative Writing at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Right now, Jemimah is collaborating with Nikon Singapore to pen a travel photography series to be released over the course of 2015, which is ongoing here. She also guest-blogs for Paypal occasionally, over on their Stories Newsroom.
