Yuhan Liu is a respected, widely recognized New York-based journalist and media professional whose resume includes six years’ experience with the New York Times, the New York Observer, and China Daily, where she served both as producer and host of some of China Daily’s highest-rated video programming.
Yuhan is perhaps best known for her major contribution to the New York Times’ 2015 “Unvarnished” series, a 13-month investigation into the nail salon industry that exposed abusive practices therein. The reporting led to New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s signing into law a new and vigorously pertinent Bill of Rights. In April, 2016, the series was named a Pulitzer Prize Finalist.
In addition to her contributions to the Times and her serving as Secretary General of the “Asian American TV & Film Alliance,” Yuhan is also the co-founder of America’s top WeChat public account, nycmaster, which enjoys approximately 400,000 subscribers. In 2016, in a ceremony held at the United Nations, Yuhan was presented with a “Most Distinguished Chinese Award,” an honor that included congratulatory letters from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York State Assembly.
