My name is Boya Sun, I go by Alison. I was born and raised in Yinchuan, China. I moved to Cincinnati, OH in 2017 for school. I just graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in journalism (focusing on the visual side of journalism) with a minor in fashion design study

I moved to New York City during the pandemic last year, and about to start my M.S. Documentary program at Columbia University.  

I am passionate about visual storytelling, I have always believed that there is no better way to tell a story than photography and videography. I am highly interested in capturing and conveying the story of different people from different cultural backgrounds. 


In my free time, I love creating different content for my YouTube channel. I am also good at catching the trends on social media and predicting what might be in trend in the next couple of years. 


I am also a big traveler. I have been to Thailand, Iceland, Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Poland. Meeting and talking to different people is how I learn about this world.
