After moving from Hong Kong to Texas as a teenager, Mary H.K. Choi fell in love with reading and knew she wanted to turn her passion for magazines into something greater. She got her chance when she left for NYC and landed an internship at Mass Appeal, which she funneled into a gig at XXL and, eventually, her own magazine, MissBehave. From there, she redefined the writer’s role in the digital age, crafting powerful works across a variety of mediums, including issue #1 of Lady Deadpool, DJ Khaled’s biography The Keys and her new YA book, Emergency Contact.
