About Virginia Duan
Virginia Duan is a writer incapable of writing in brief. She swears. A lot. She finds it impossible to refrain from commenting online for the sole purpose of making people admit they are idiots. Fatal flaw is fatal. She discusses the deeply uncomfortable and humiliating with biting humor and glimpses of grace; loves the injudicious use of ALLCAPS; is #teamoxfordcomma; and always stans BTS.
Virginia was a 2016 Listen to Your Mother SF Show cast member and you can find her work on various sites like Romper, Mom.com, and Mochi Magazine. For more examples of her work check out her portfolio. She's a Staff Writer/Editor at Mochi Magazine and the Living Justice Section Editor at Diverging Magazine. Virginia also guests on podcasts like Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast. She chronicles her mishaps at Mandarin Mama.
Virginia's first book, So You Want Your Kid to Learn Chinese, hit #1 in Amazon's Chinese Language Instruction section in one day. This book is for every parent who wants their kid to learn Chinese and is willing to supplement and provide the necessary support that their child will need.
