Behind Cheeni Chronicles
Vicky Zhuang Yi-Yin
Filmmaker | Writer | Performer | Theatre Productionist | storyteller
I was born in Pakistan, and both my parents are Chinese. That makes me Pakistani Chinese. Yeah, not a very common combination. It isn't. To be honest, I am an anomaly. An interesting one too. This website is about my celebration of life in Pakistan and my work.
THIS IS ME
My name is Vicky Zhuang Yi-Yin. I am a storyteller. My parents came to Pakistan in the 1980s from China, and I was born in 1988. I have lived in Pakistan ever since. That has been a very strong part of my identity as a First Generation Pakistani born Chinese, and I wear it like a badge.
This is where I document my experiences, my work and share my thoughts in a more curated form. I enjoy the stage, behind the camera, singing songs and working with words, and sometimes I also teach what I know to other people. You'll get to see more things coming up on this website with each project that I complete.
