Codie (Qingchunyi) Yan is currently pursuing Film at College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University along with a Communications Photography minor at S.I.Newhouse School of Public Communications.
Originally from China, Codie lived and studied in Singapore for one year before coming to the US to receive higher education in visual storytelling. The multi-cultural environment in Singapore intrigued her to pick up a small micro four thirds camera and began capturing the cultural nuances that captivated and inspired her.

Codie is currently a staff photographer for Syracuse University's independent newspaper, The Daily Orange, and Medley Magazine, a campus publication that fosters cultural discussion among university students.
